Higher Education

Bringing study abroad opportunities to Community College students across the US.

Community College in France aims at building connections between U.S. Community Colleges and French higher education institutions, and increase diversity and inclusion in study abroad. As part of this initiative, the Embassy of France and Albertine Foundation offer community college students with a strong interest in cultural exchange, the opportunity to study abroad and experience life in France.

Studying abroad should be within the grasp of every student!
The Community College in France initiative helps break down barriers that are keeping community college students from studying abroad and gives them the opportunity to broaden their horizons, by participating in short-term summer programs, or enrolling in a degree-granting program.

Community College in France is made possible thanks to the support of:
L’Oréal Fund for Women
Albert & Elaine Borchard Foundation.
