About the 501(c)(3) French-American
Chamber of Commerce Foundation
The French-American Chamber of Commerce (FACC) Foundation was launched in June of 2012 with the goal of raising funds to help finance the training and education of the next generation of transatlantic business leaders. Through its “Serge Bellanger French-American MBA Scholarship", the Foundation provides scholarships to eligible French graduate students pursuing an MBA in the U.S., and to eligible American graduate students pursuing an MBA in France.
The Scholarship is named for Serge Bellanger, former longtime President of the FACC and a leader in the French-American business community.
Now in its fourth year, the FACC Foundation Gala will take place at Tribeca Rooftop on Thursday, September 10, 2015. The Gala attracts the highest level representatives of New York's French and American business community, as well as government representatives.
The Foundation provides aspiring young business leaders with invaluable learning opportunities that will help expand their career opportunities, promote cross-cultural dialogue and improve foreign language skills. The Foundation also helps FACC members by contributing to the development of a talented pool of well-trained, bi-cultural candidates. This is a cornerstone of the FACC's mission - to improve the understanding and business development between France and the U.S. for the benefit of its 900 members in the New York area.
The cohort of ten scholarship recipients was selected in 2015 for the 2015-2016 school year. Students are pursuing MBA programs at such schools as MIT Sloan School of Management; HEC Paris; and Stanford Business School.
