Visiting Professor Grants

The Foundation provides more than just scholarship opportunities for students; it also facilitates teaching exchanges to allow for transnational dispersion of knowledge and creation of new research opportunities.

In 2011, the Foundation funded Ian Basin, Deputy Associate Counsel to the White House, who taught a course on American constitutional law at the Reims and Paris campuses.

In 2012, the Foundation funded Dr. Eugene Ford of Yale University’s Department of History to teach at Sciences Po’s Reims campus. He taught two courses: Transatlantic History and the Geopolitics of War and Empire.

In 2014, the Foundation funded Georges Bermann of Columbia University to teach a workshop called Courts as Enforcers of Arbitration Agreements and Arbitral Awards within the Master of Economic Law program at Sciences Po Law School from March 13th through March 20th.

This 8 hour workshop allows participating second year students to practice and hone skills, building on knowledge previously learned. Small groups facilitate student exchange and allow for the exercise of various activities (writing, mock trials, development of oral or written arguments) based on real cases.
