John K. Knowles Foreign Study Scholarship


2018 application period for students planning to study abroad during:

Summer or Fall 2018 

Click to download the Application (PDF)

The John K. Knowles Foreign Study Scholarship was established by Dr. John Knowles (SU Spanish faculty 1971-1997) in order to expand study abroad opportunities for students studying a foreign language at SU. 

An application to the John Knowles Scholarship has two goals:

  1. To receive funds that will help offset study abroad expenses
  2. To serve as practice for more demanding grants and applications in the future

For that reason, your application must be:

  • Complete. Read the questions thoroughly!
  • Well-written. Pay attention to grammar, vocabulary, punctuation, and spelling (Use spell check!)

If you are unsure of the quality of your application, please visit the Writing Center for help.

Scholarship requirements:

  • Students must be at the sophomore rank or above
  • Be a foreign language major or minor at SU. Please make sure to officially declare your major / minor before applying to this scholarship
  • Submit an application which describes their personal and academic goals and how these will be met by a study abroad experience.
  • An unofficial transcript must accompany the completed application.

Students are expected to participate in Departmental activities that promote study abroad upon their return to campus.

Scholarship recipients are encouraged to keep the Knowles fund alive by donating to the Knowles Scholarship Fund through the University Foundation in the future.


Applications are due Monday, April 9.
