|Carol Raymond French Fund
for study abroad scholarships (2012-2013)
The Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures, through the generous support of the Carol Raymond French Fund, announces its annual scholarship competition for study abroad projects in French and Francophone studies. The Committee is looking to disburse a total of $15,000 for study abroad projects set to take place between May 2012 and May 2013. To apply, a student must be enrolled as an undergraduate student at UNM and participate in a study abroad project that involves French or Francophone studies. French majors and second majors will have preference, but French minors as well as European Studies, Comparative Literature, and Languages majors specializing in French are also encouraged to apply. The study abroad program can be of any duration, but preference will be given to academic year-long projects.
