Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Summer Institute
Jeanne Frouin, a young high-school student from Angers has been selected to represent France in a State Department funded exchange program at the Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
A junior-year student from the Lycée Sainte Agnès in Angers, Ms. Jeanne Frouin –who just passed her baccalaureate in French and History – is flying off to North Carolina. Jeanne will participate in a four-week, State Department funded program called the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute.
The aim of the program is to unite fifty European and ten American high school students (aged 16 to 18). Institute activities will include discussions on global issues, leadership and media training, community service and educational travel among others. The participants will stay on university campus and in host families. The aim is to deepen the participants’ experience of U.S. society during their exchange.
Ms. Jeanne Frouin and Mr. Cédric Schmitdke from Colmar have been selected to represent France this year.
