The Eleanor Kirkpatrick Franco-American Fellows Program is a joint project between the Alliance Française d’Oklahoma and the French Education Ministry with the support of the Oklahoma State Department of Education.  This exchange program is made possible through the generosity of the Eleanor Kirkpatrick Fellows Endowment.  The visiting French students are supported by a grant from the French Éducation Nationale.

The grant covers the costs of airline travel, lodging, and meals. The program is open to central Oklahoma French students, ages 16 to 22, who attend public or private high schools, career technology centers, or community colleges.

Our program relies on support from donors.  To make a financial contribution to the Eleanor Kirkpatrick Franco-American Fellows Program through the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, please click the link below.
