CMLL Study Abroad Scholarship


The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures (CMLL) is proud to offer our students financial support to study abroad. Studying abroad provides a rich opportunity to develop language proficiency, gain international experience, and cultivate professional skills in an immersive, real-world context. We are committed to making that opportunity more financially accessible for all through awards ranging between $1,000 and $5,000.

In addition to applying the CMLL Study Abroad Scholarship, students must apply to the study abroad program of their choice by the appropriate deadline. Please be aware that the study abroad program application deadlines may be in advance of the CMLL Study Abroad Scholarship application deadlines. Our goal is to select and notify awardees of their scholarship in advance of the TTU study abroad program commitment deadlines.

Scholarship Criteria 

  • Minimum 2.0 GPA
  • Preference given to CMLL majors/minors
  • Preference given to students demonstrating financial need
  • Preference given to students studying on faculty-led study abroad programs including those hosted by TTU centers in Spain and Costa Rica
