Scholarships - Make It Possible!

For our students, traveling and studying abroad is a necessary component to language learning. Students become immersed in a culture and its daily practices and experiences, and by doing so, they expand both their language skills and their world view. Unfortunately, the cost of going abroad is getting higher each day. Students who decide to study their language in one of its home countries are strongly encouraged to seek out scholarships to help offset the cost of the invaluable experience of going abroad. Below, you will find some information about the various scholarships offered through our department.
