The French-American Chamber of Commerce, Michigan Chapter, believes that college and university students in business studies and French language studies provide the foundation for the future growth of French-American business relations.
The purpose of the FACC scholarship program is to assist college and university students in Michigan who study business or business related courses and French language studies and who plan to combine French and business in their future career plans. Their scholarships range from $1,500 and up, based on merit, need, and the career goals of the student. Read more about the FACC scholarship program.
“What can I do with a French degree? Teach?”
This is what often comes to mind when thinking about how useful learning French is for your career.
At Albion College some of our majors have gone on to be teachers in high school, at the International Academy in Bloomfield Hills for example, or at the university level, such as at Minnesota State University. But most of our majors and minors have done other things. And they are wide-ranging: Some majors, after studying French, have worked at a Club Med, at a youth hostel, and went on to law school to study equine law.
Most of our majors and minors combine the study of language and culture with other fields they have worked in, and have pursured career opportunities in the following areas:
Fulbright in teaching in Rwanda
Small business owner (bakery, online clothing store)
Teaching Assistant Program in France, sponsored by the French government
Teaching English (in Japan, Korea, France)
French tutor and physical therapist
French Consumer Service for Proctor and Gamble
US Immigration Services
