Supporting Language/Culture Study and Work Abroad through Fellowships
Studying and/or working abroad can be a transformative experience as one engages with other ways of thinking and being in the world. For students of language, studying abroad can also provide opportunities to further develop their understanding of the language. For those who have finished their classroom language study, work abroad is a way to apply this understanding in meaningful ways. In both cases, financial obstacles can feel like the most challenging aspect of the process.
The goal of this panel is to help undergraduates visualize the different ways they can financially support studying language/culture abroad and working abroad through the foreign service.
Panelists will present information on specific fellowships and scholarships that fund language/culture study and work abroad as well as share tips for navigating the application process. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. Specific scholarships and centers represented include: Advanced Language Study Grant and Summer Language Course Grant (Scandinavian languages); Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship program; Max Kade Summer Travel Stipend (German); Rangel Fellowship; Pickering Fellowship; Payne Fellowship; Critical Language Scholarship; Boren Scholarship; and the Carol Dolcini Flight Fund (French).
