Global Languages and Cultures


Through the generous support of friends of the department who share our passion for learning another language and recognize the importance of studying abroad, we are fortunate to offer three scholarships to help defray the costs for students seeking to use their second language skills through a study abroad immersion experience. Each scholarship has specific requirements, and you should make note of the application deadlines.


Assistance Fund for Students of German
For summer or semester study abroad

The Assistance Fund for Students of German helps students defray the cost of studying German with an accredited program in a German-speaking country and was established by Dr. Elke and Prof. Edward Hatch.

Bro. Paul Bredestege, S.M. Endowment for the Study of Spanish Abroad
For summer study abroad only

The endowment was established to provide assistance to students of Spanish who will take courses for Spanish credit through a summer study abroad program in a Spanish-speaking country.  The Bredestege Family, in honor of Bro. Paul Bredestege, S.M., created the endowment.
