Thursday, CODOFIL announced the opening of the application period for their 2020 French language scholarship opportunities.

According to the organization, the scholarships provide an opportunity to Louisiana students, teachers, and professionals to improve their French language skills and cultural awareness for current and future careers in Louisiana. A variety of scholarships are available for high school students, university students, future French language teachers, French language teachers currently teaching in Louisiana, and professionals working in Louisiana who want to travel to Canada, Belgium, or France to improve their French in order to make their workplace more “French friendly.”

Scholarships are also available for participation in Escadrille Louisiane (“Louisiana Squadron"). This two-year program trains Louisianans in an effort to place highly-qualified, certified, and fluent French-speaking teachers from our state in our French Immersion schools.

Application deadlines are as follows; however, applicants are encouraged to submit as early as possible:
