A global mindset will be critical for the next general of global leaders, and we are determined to make global experiences possible for all Longhorns so they are equipped with the skills, knowledge and cultural competency to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.
We invite you to join us in our efforts by supporting programs and initiatives that connect UT with the world, turn possibilities into real-world opportunities and advance UT’s international research collaborations. Not only will your gift transform the lives of Longhorns, but you will expand the university’s international reputation and impact.

The University of Texas at Austin and the Embassy of France in the United States have established an enduring partnership —helping to point our sharpest minds at the world’s most urgent challenges. To encourage strategic collaboration, we proudly offer annual awards for bi-national research between UT Austin faculty and institutions of higher education in France. Our annual award is inspired by and in honor of Dr. Cécile DeWitt-Morette, one of France’s most notable scientists and a UT professor of five decades. Your support will lead to generations of joint discoveries and deeper ties between the people of France and Texas.
