Texas Tech University


The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures represents a truly unique, deeply human connection for students to relate to the global community. The Department's programs do this by offering students the opportunity, through the study of languages, world literatures, and global cultures, to broaden and deepen their thinking, and enhance their understanding of the world in which they will live and work.

It is true that academic disciplines in the Humanities do not have as many opportunities for extramural funding support. This obviously introduces missed opportunities, for researchers and teachers, and ultimately, the students they serve. CMLL's programs all would benefit deeply from donor assistance. We are grateful of the direct benefit donors have on our students through their gifts sponsoring our courses, programs, and study abroad opportunities. The potentials are truly infinite.

Current Goals

  • We have created a scholarship in memory of Kimi Nakatsukasa. Our goal is to make it into an endowment so we can provide stable annual grants to our graduate students. Please consider donating to honor Kimi's memory and support our graduate students' wellbeing and education.
  • The Lorum Stratton Study Abroad Scholarship Endowment assists students studying abroad. The remarkable experience of being abroad - for a semester, an academic year, or during a summer program - is deeply enriching. With an assistive endowment, so many more students can participate in our abroad programs, and gain knowledge, insights (and once-in-a-lifetime memories) which only experiencing another culture can bring.


CMLL is grateful for the support we have received through donor gifts. We specially recognize our donors (in concert with their own wishes) in announcements, facility placards and other appropriate venues.

Our benefactors have provided:

  • A number of scholarships & prizes, which assist both undergraduate and graduate students, in a variety of disciplines.
  • The establishment of two professorships:
    • The Jean Charnier Qualia Professorship in Foreign Languages (French)
    • The Charles Qualia Endowed Chair (Spanish)
