Give to the Department

Giving to World Languages allows you to direct your scholarship to the language of your choice, helping students studying that language to achieve their goals.

Support from donors plays a critical role in our mission to prepare students for success in a multilingual environment. Your gift will allow us to provide scholarships for students to further their studies in American Sign Language, Arabic, Basque, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Latin American and Latino/a Studies, or Spanish.
