Mary Pettus Thomas Memorial Scholarship

Thanks to an extremely generous gift from a donor, the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures is going to be able to offer substantial scholarships through the Mary Pettus Thomas Memorial Scholarship Fund to students pursuing a University of Memphis study abroad program. The exact amount awarded to each student will depend on the individual student's financial need.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, students must have a declared major in Foreign Languages, have achieved Junior standing (60 hours), have at least a 3.00 GPA, demonstrate financial need, and have a letter of support from a faculty member in the department.

The funding is contingent on enrollment and participation in a study abroad program. Please note that students applying for this scholarship should also apply for the Study Abroad scholarship awarded by the Study Abroad office, which is different from this scholarship.

Currently the department is not accepting applications.  Students planning on study abroad in the Spring of 2016 will be able to apply for the scholarship in mid-October 2015.
