Program Guidelines




The France-Berkeley Fund supports new collaborations between faculty and research scientists at the University of California, Berkeley and their counterparts in France.

The core mission of the FBF is to advance innovative basic and applied research in all fields. We accept single-discipline or interdisciplinary proposals on any research topic in STEM, arts & humanities, social sciences, law, business, education, and public health.

Priority is given to proposals that demonstrate a balanced exchange and demonstrate complementary expertise between teams; projects involving early-career researchers, graduate students, and undergraduates; projects designed to generate new research approaches and strategies; and projects likely to foster long-term connections.
