    The Harvard French Scholarship Fund was created in 1987 by Douglas CARVER (COLL'59), former president of the Harvard Club of France. The Fund is currently co-chaired by Elsa SAVOUREY (HLS'14) and Ioanna THOMA (HLS'00)

    Its goal is to provide financial aid to French students enrolled at Harvard University through grants and loans.

    The Fund is unique because it is an independent alumni-funded program jointly sponsored by the Harvard Club of France, the Harvard Law School Association and the local Harvard Business Club.

    The Fund autonomously interviews, selects candidates, and stays touch with beneficiaries throughout their time at Harvard and in the years thereafter.
