Pascal Chadenet Georgetown Alumni

" The French American Fund-TWC joint program is an exciting initiative designed to give French and American students the chance to develop leadership skills, self-efficacy, and confidence. The program aims to share these skills and apply the unique perspective international students have.

As a former Georgetown student, I do wish the best of success to The French American Fund and I will be pleased to share my experience with the founders of this Paris based institution and with students on both sides of the Atlantic !

Living, interning and studying in Washington D.C. and in Paris represents an outstanding experience for students both from France and The United States."
