The First World War Centenary Partnership Program is a public interest group established in 2012 by the French Government for the preparation and implementation of the commemorative program for the First World War centenary. It is made up of sixteen founding members and works under the authority of the deputy minister responsible for War veterans, Mr Jean-Marc Todeschini.
Commemorating the Centenary of the US involvement in the First World War, France and the United States are undertaking a series of joint initiatives in 2017. The French Embassy, the French First World War Centenary Partnership Program and the US WWI Centennial Commission aim to foster research on WWI to promote new historical outlooks and approaches.
Thanks to the support of the French First World War Centenary Partnership Program, specific funding will be available this year for Chateaubriand Fellowship applicants who are specializing on this period that shaped the twentieth century.
