 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS

Students and Teachers Scholarships for 2023

A cornerstone of the mission of the Alliance Fran├žaise of Hawai’i is “to encourage and further the knowledge of French culture and language.” As a result, from its inception, our organization has offered scholarships to teachers and students so they may further their knowledge of the language and culture through classes locally, nationally or in a French-speaking country. 

Applications for the current scholarship travel and study grants are available online from 01 September and must be submitted no later than 15 March. The Scholarship Committee composed of teachers from all levels of French (grades 10-20+) selects the worthiest applicants in early April. 

High School 

Students (Gr. 10-12) currently enrolled in French language classes who want to pursue an accredited course outside of their school curriculum or study abroad in France or in a French-speaking country with an accredited program may apply for support. Students who are current members of Alliance Francaise of Hawai'i are looked upon favorably.


University 

Students currently enrolled in community college or university French studies classes who want to pursue an accredited course outside their school curriculum or study abroad in France or in a French-speaking country may apply for support. Graduate students who want to present a paper at or attend a French language conference are also encouraged to apply for grant support. Students who are current Alliance Francaise of Hawai'i  members are given preference.


Teachers

Teachers who want to attend a French language conference or perfect their language or cultural knowledge by enrolling in an accredited program in the U.S., France or in a French-speaking country are encouraged to apply for grant support. Teachers who are members of Alliance Francaise of Hawai'i and American Association of Teachers of French (AATF)-Hawai’i Chapter are given preference.
