Coronavirus & The Travel Ban

Dear All:

On behalf of the French-American Foundation – United States, I would like to address the recent travel restrictions between the US and Europe in response to the novel coronavirus.

The French-American Foundation is committed to both ensuring the continuation of transatlantic discussion and taking the necessary precautions to maximize health and safety of our community and staff. As such, we are reducing in-person events and strengthening our digital presence so that the dialogue we generate on a routine basis can continue in the healthiest environment possible. We will inform you of these online resources as we finalize their development.

As a nongovernmental organization at the heart of transatlantic affairs since 1976, we have operated during periods of stability and challenge to maintain a consistent exchange of information between both sides of the Atlantic – a mission we will continue to uphold.

We thank our community for their patience at this time and for their dedication to our team as we move forward with these changes.



Emeline Foster
Executive Director
French-American Foundation – United States
