Foreign Language Scholarship

The Thomas Goetz/Robert Rie Modern Language Scholarships are awarded each year to a number of upper level undergraduate foreign language majors who demonstrate outstanding academic ability and are recommended by the foreign language staff to the chairperson of the Department of World Languages and Cultures. Financially these are very modest amounts, but very important to students for the recognition they bring to them for their personal achievements in the learning of a foreign language.
