Welcome to the Institut Français d’Amérique’s webpage.

The mission of the Institut Français d’Amérique is to promote, in North America, the study of French culture, language, history, society and French-American relations and to encourage the work of teachers, scholars, and students in these fields.  The Institut also sponsors events to foster public understanding of French-American relations.  The Institut provides funds for fellowships, prizes and conferences that serve this mission.
