ILR School and ESCP-EAP received a grant from the FACE Foundation to support Dual Degree program
ESCP-EAP and ILR School have received a grant from the US Partner University Fund (PUF) for their project "Academic partnership to advance the world of work". The grant amounts to 235 000 USD for three years.
The Partner University Fund is one of the projects of the private US foundation FACE (French American Cultural Exchange) that promotes cultural and educational cooperation between France and the US. In this year's competition, 68 French-US university pairs applied for the three year grant program, of which only 16 were funded. The grant will be used to partially fund travel and living expenses of faculty, doctoral students, MILR students who wish to study at ESCP-EAP and ESCP-EAP students who will study at ILR School as part of the new dual degree program. The grant can also be used to develop joint courses and seminars.
In the first year (2008-09) of the dual degree program, 6 French and 3 US masters students have been admitted to the program. The grant application was made jointly by Robin Remick, Director of ILR International Programs and Professor Beatrice Collin of ESCP-EAP.
