Valpo’s French program offers several targeted scholarships that provide French students with financial assistance.
There are two types of scholarships for incoming French majors:
- You should apply for a World Languages and Cultures Scholarship during your senior year of high school ($1,000, renewable each year for a total of $4,000). Interested students are strongly encouraged to apply before December 1 for admission to the university.
- The Professor Carol Petersen Scholarship is awarded every year to an incoming student majoring in French or German ($1,000 award). Students are nominated for this scholarship by the French professors.
When you are a junior French major at Valpo, you become eligible for the Patterson McLean Friedrich French Scholarship ($1,000 award). Students are nominated for this scholarship by the French professors.
