The Center for French Colonial Studies was founded in 1983 in response to the renewed interest in the history of the upper Mississippi Valley during the period of French predominance from 1673 to the early part of the 19th century. CFCS awards one $2,000 grant annually to further French-language research related to the French presence in the upper Mississippi Valley (Illinois Country).
