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.
