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.  In order to apply, students must be at the sophomore rank or above, be a foreign language major or minor at SU, and 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. Scholarship recipients are encouraged to keep the Knowles fund alive by donating to the Knowles Scholarship Fund through the University Foundation in the future.

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

The number of scholarships varies, depending on the availability of funds.  Awards in the past have usually ranged from $200 to $600.

Applications are due Friday, April 10th.
