Paris Lecture Series

Each year JYF in Paris presents lectures for students, alumni of the program, and host families.

The Lectureship is presented through the generosity of the Bradt Family Fund. The Fund is an endowment of JYF, which supports multi-disciplinary lectures and receptions in France with contemporary French thought leaders. These activities, offered during the academic year, are intended to advance mutual understanding between members of the university community — notably the students of JYF, University of Paris, and alumni of these institutions.
