Bring French language and culture alive for your students with funding for a visit to France

Submit your application by Monday 30 September

British Council Schools Online has two exciting opportunities to develop your UK/France partnership. There are two grants available, one from the Charles de Gaulle Trust and one from the Lefèvre Trust. They both offer student mobility grants to schools in the UK and France and can be used for individual and/or group visits.

Who is eligible?

Secondary schools, including sixth form and further education colleges. Schools must have an existing partnership with a French institution. If you are interested in this opportunity but do not have a partner, our Schools Online partner-finding tool has everything you need to set up a fresh partnership.

What is the offer?

The Charles de Gaulle Trust offers a grant of £3,000 per school for students aged between 17 and 19 (A level only).

The Lefèvre Trust offers a grant of £5,000 per school for students aged between 11 and 19.

Schools with students aged 11 to 19 can apply for grants via both trusts to receive a total of £8,000 each.

What are the benefits?

As well as the invaluable advantage of experiencing the French culture first-hand, students will also benefit from; raised levels of proficiency in preparation for GCSE and A level/Highers oral examinations, improved confidence in speaking French by practising with peers at the partner school and increased motivation in continuing to learn French by exchanging language and culture in an authentic environment.

How do I apply?                                                                                                        

The grant application form and guidance are available to download from the Charles de Gaulle and Lefèvre webpage.

The deadline is Monday 30 September.
