The Fédération of Alliances Françaises USA mourns the loss of innocent lives in July in Nice. We stand in solidarity with our friends, family, loved ones, and all the people of France during this time of grief and anguish. Vive la France!

Welcome to the Federation of Alliances Françaises USA.

Fédération des Alliances Françaises USA

On March 4, 1902, delegates from 19 American cities met in New York to form a federation of emerging Alliances Françaises in the United States.

The Federation of Alliances Françaises USA continues to serve as the cooperative organization for the network which has grown to well over 100 Alliances in the USA — each one of which is dedication to teaching the French language and enjoying the culture of French speaking countries.

We invite you to explore our web-site to find the Alliance Française nearest to you, and to learn about all the benefits and opportunities the Federation provides to its chapters.

Cultural Grant 2016 Announcement

Thank you to all that applied for the 2016 Cultural Grant. Due to the recent transition in the Federation Office, several grant applications were not received in the office by the application deadline. The Federation considers that the Grant initiatives are a major component of the Federation’s mission of helping member chapters to develop. We particularly encourage chapters to apply again for this award or any of the other grants described on the Federation Website.

We are Brussels

Paris, le 24 mars 2016

Très chers amis de l'Alliance Française de Belgique,

Comme suite aux évènements dramatiques survenus mardi dernier a Bruxelles, it me tient à cœur de vous exprimer, au nom de la Fondation Alliance Française, ma profonde compassion et toute ma solidarité en ces moments éprouvants.

Mes pensées premières vont vers les victimes ainsi que leurs proches durement touchés par ce drame.

Plus que jamais les valeurs de liberté et de tolérance que nous attendons au nom de l’Alliance Française font sens. Elles nous sont essentielles pour affronter résolument cette abjecte adversité sur laquelle, n'ayons aucun doute là-dessus, nous finirons par l’emporter.

Croyez en mes sentiments fraternels.

Jérôme Clément
Président de la fondation Alliance Française.
