 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 Student Scholarship", the FACC Foundation provides scholarships to eligible French graduate students looking to pursue an MBA in the U.S., and to eligible American graduate students who wish to pursue 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.

By creating the Foundation, the FACC – New York provides aspiring young business leaders with invaluable French-American learning opportunities that will help expand their career opportunities, promote cross-cultural dialogue and improve their foreign language skills. The Foundation also helps its corporate 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 800 members in the New York area.

When the Foundation was created, Elsa Berry, President of the French-American Chamber of Commerce and of the FACC Foundation, commented: “The funds raised by the Foundation will provide valuable financial resources to French and American young people interested in international business careers. The Chamber’s relationships with top universities in both countries offer us a unique opportunity to support enhanced business, cultural and educational exchanges between France and the United States.”

The first cohort of six scholarship recipients was selected in 2013 for the 2013-2014 school year.
