Modern & Classical Languages

An Opportunity to Support MCL

Here are some of the scholarships, funds, and events that your contribution supports:

Kevin S. Larsen Memorial Fund

Awards are for the benefit of the faculty and students of the Department of Modern & Classical Languages, as well as support for symposia, outreach, or other academic expenses.

World Languages Day Fund

Funds cover costs needed to benefit of secondary school students throughout Wyoming during the annual World Languages Day, the State Championship of World Languages for Wyoming.

James R. Burman (BS'75) Memorial Language Scholarship:

Available to students of Russian and secondarily to German, Spanish or French (in that order).

Siren Memorial Scholarship

Available to undergraduate and graduate students in French or German, and History (preferably Wyoming residents). There are two awards annually, one in History and one to a student in French or German (German in odd-numbered years; French in even-numbered years).

Robert J and Vivian R Geer Schlshp

Used for scholarship grants to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in English and MCL. The award shall alternate between the two departments on an annual basis. In the event that the distributions become large enough to support two or more awards of at least $1000 each in a given year, then the distributions shall not alternate between the two departments but instead shall be divided equally between English and MCL.

Mueller-Hanson German Schlshp

The endowed scholarship is awarded annually to an outstanding undergraduate German major; selection is by the German section in the department. The scholarship consists of an award -- with size dependent on the interest from the endowment -- toward tuition, spread over two semesters.

Goode Family Excellence Schlshp

Scholarships from the Goode Family Excellence Fund are available to students minoring in any foreign language and majoring in the sciences or business. To be eligible, a student should have a GPA of 3.0 or better and must have completed at least 6 hours in a declared minor in a foreign language. The scholarship will provide the equivalent of in-state tuition for up to the next 6 hours of course work in the minor.
