Program Description:

Department of French, Francophone & Italian Studies Study Abroad Scholarship

This scholarship is open to KU degree-seeking undergraduate students who have applied to an academic year, semester or summer study abroad program in a French or Italian speaking country where a majority of classes taken abroad are in French or Italian Studies and are transferable as FFIT credit (minimum of six credit hours). The Department of French, Francophone and Italian Studies will be awarding multiple scholarships each term.  

Please contact Professor Caroline Jewers in the Department of French, Francophone and Italian Studies if you have any questions regarding this scholarship.


Application Procedures

All applicants will be required to submit the following documents. Applicants who have not begun an application for a study abroad program will not be eligible for the scholarship.  Please indicate in the personal statement/letter of motivation any extenuating circumstances you would like the committee to consider in evaluating your application, including financial hardship or other challenges you have faced.

  • Scholarship Personal Statement / Letter of Motivation (two pages maximum)
  • Unofficial Transcript or Advising Report
  • One Letter of Recommendation

Please note: You may choose the same referee for the study abroad application and the scholarship application.  Also, your referee may submit the same letter of recommendation.  However, make sure to tell you referee beforehand that you are applying to the study abroad program AND a scholarship, as letters should be more detailed if also applying for a scholarship.

All scholarship recipients will be expected to do a brief write-up of their experience abroad, preferably including photos. In cases where the scholarship is funded by a living donor, recipients will be expected to write a thank-you note.
