How to win foreign languages scholarships

As you apply to foreign languages scholarships, try to take your essays a step further. Don’t just talk about how much you love the language you’re studying or how well you speak it. Talk about the change in the world you hope to make once you have a better grasp of the language. Discuss the plans you would make if you won the scholarship and what it would help you to accomplish.

The organizations offering scholarships want to grant them to students who will use them to make big changes. They are looking to help make success stories. Make sure to emphasize the successes you can obtain if you receive that help from the organization.

Writing a stellar essay

Writing an effective scholarship essay is no small task. Luckily, we have a variety of resources to answer any questions you may have. Check out our guides on how to start and end scholarship essays, as well as some tips on responding to the most common scholarship essay prompts. We’ll also help you tailor your writing to 250 or 500 word limits, and learn about writing about yourself. Good luck!

Resources for foreign language students

Alpha Mu Gamma

Alpha Mu Gamma is the largest national collegiate foreign language honor society in the country. No matter what language you are studying, Alpha Mu Gamma recognizes it. This includes American Sign Language. There are chapters at most colleges and universities, and membership offers opportunities for networking and professional development, and it looks great on a resume.

American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese

For students studying Spanish or Portuguese, this is a great organization offering networking, insight into the state of foreign language instruction, and scholarships. Many students who major in a foreign language go on to teaching, and organizations like this can give a good idea of what that career field would look like. Those who are pursuing a degree in another language could benefit from seeking a similar organization for their language. They exist for most languages.

Frequently asked questions 

What colleges have the best foreign language programs?

Some of the universities with the best foreign language programs include: Columbia University, Brigham Young University, UW-Seattle, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. For a more complete list of colleges with the best foreign language programs, check out this list. Keep in mind, however, that this is by no means a complete list and you can still get a fulfilling and complete foreign language education at your chosen university (just remember to check out what languages are available beforehand!).

What jobs can you get knowing multiple languages?

Great question. You have many career options when you know multiple languages, including: translator, foreign service officer, international sales manager, or foreign correspondent. Knowing multiple languages can even expand your options if you’re in a vastly different field, as the number of job listings aimed at bilingual workers more than doubled between 2010 and 2015 (and is continuing to grow!).
