France-Berkeley Fund

France-Berkeley Fund Logo

The France Berkeley Fund was established in 1993 as a partnership between the government of France and the University of California at Berkeley, the France-Berkeley Fund (FBF) promotes scholarly exchange in all disciplines between UC Berkeley and all research centers and public institutions of higher education in France. Through its annual grant competition, the Fund provides seed-money for innovative, bi-national collaborative research. Successful projects bring together senior and junior researchers in a variety of ways, from workshops and conferences to exchanges of researchers in laboratories.

For the 2010 grant program applications from UC Berkeley, UC Davis and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are eligible for the competition.

All applications from UC Davis need to go through: The Office of Sponsored Programs – Office of Research

Since 1993, the France-Berkeley Fund has awarded close to $2.5 million to fund nearly 250 projects in a wide range of fields -- from viticulture and bioengineering to health care policy and Asian history. Many past FBF grant recipients have gone on to secure additional funding from private and governmental sources on both sides of the Atlantic to further their collaboration. In addition to the grant competition, the Fund administers the Berkeley-C.N.R.S. exchange of scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Please see our:
