Charles de Gaulle Trust funding is specifically for students aged 17 to 19, the visits give students the chance to prove to future educators and employers that they are globally-minded, committed and dedicated young people. During their visits students will be able to work on research or projects that contribute to their learning and future development. They will also strengthen the bond between their school or college and French colleagues, contributing to a successful long-term partnership. Grants of up to £5000 per institution are available to facilitate reciprocal visits to France and the UK. The next application deadline is 17 May 2016.
