Bootcamps 2023 – Community College in France

We are pleased to present the new Bootcamps for summer 2023! The Bootcamps are a great opportunity for community college students to study-abroad in France, learn about sustainability, and broaden their intellectual horizons.
We are working on 4 new programs and prepared a communication toolkit to help you share this exciting opportunity with your students. More information below and on our website.
The Bootcamp Experience:
The Bootcamps are part of the French Embassy’s mission to lower the barriers to studying abroad for underrepresented and underserved students. We designed our programs to be accessible both in terms of cost and academic requirements. Students can expect:
  • High-quality academic programs offered by top French institutions
  • A multi-disciplinary and project-based learning experience
  • An all-inclusive package
