Gale Crouse Scholarship for Students of French

Departments: Languages Categories: French | Service Learning | Study Abroad
Amount One award of $400.
Availability Available annually.
Eligibility Criteria

Given to a deserving French student wishing to complete a project related to a humanitarian cause in a French or francophone environment that would satisfy the 30-hour service learning requirement for graduation. The recipient will be required to give a presentation about the experience to French faculty and students upon returning to UW-Eau Claire.

Because UW-Eau Claire has a study-abroad program located Pau, France, the study abroad directors on location will assist in identifying opportunities for such a project. Possibilities could include: 1) working with Les Restos du Coeur (a soup kitchen); 2) working with Les Compagnons D'Emmaus (a charity organization); 3) working with the Red Cross; 4) helping homeless people; 5) helping minorities; 6) helping the poor and the sick; 7) working to protect or restore the environment; 8) working with 'Habitat for Humanity'; or 9) working with Medecins sans frontiers (Doctors without Borders).

Students who do not study in Pau will have to make their own arrangements - subject to approval by the French section - to serve a humanitarian cause in France or in a francophone country.
