Lurcy Fellowship for Study in France

The Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust seeks to promote friendship and understanding between the peoples of the United States and France and, secondarily, between Americans and Europeans in general. This is achieved by supporting scholarly activities and exchanges which allow members of one society to learn more about the people and civilization of the other society.


The student must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United States. Applicants should be graduate students whose academic objectives would benefit from this experience.

The Lurcy Fellowship invites applications from a broad range of disciplines, without any preferences as to any field of study or department.
