The AFS Fellowships for French Universities was a scholarship program established in December 1919 by A. Piatt Andrew, Stephen Galatti, and other AFS ambulance drivers, and funded 222 students on the graduate level to travel to and from France for advanced study until the program was discontinued in 1952.
