John K. Knowles Foreign Study Scholarship

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. This scholarship expands study abroad opportunities for students studying a foreign language at Salisbury University. Students must be at the sophomore rank or above, provide evidence of financial need from FAFSA and submit an application which describes their personal and academic goals and how they will be met by a study abroad experience. Preference will be given to foreign language majors and minors. They are further expected to participate in related departmental activities upon their return to campus. The number of scholarships will vary, depending on the availability of funds. Information is available from the Department of Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies. Scholarship recipients are encouraged to keep the Knowles fund alive by donating to the Knowles Scholarship Fund through the Salisbury University Foundation in the future. Submitted applications for this scholarship must be complete with well written essays. Pay attention to grammar, vocabulary, punctuation and spelling! If you are unsure of the quality of your application, please visit the Writing Center for help. Deadline to apply for winter/spring scholarships is Oct 15th and deadline to apply for fall/summer scholarship is April 9th.
