The World Needs Victors

Thank you for allowing us to offer Romance languages and literatures at the University of Michigan since 1847. Your generous donations are the reason that we have been able to welcome over 3,000 students into our language classes each fall, offer our 800 concentrators and minors courses in language and literature, and accept some of the top graduate student candidates to our program each year.  

Currently, we offer one of the highest numbers of study abroad scholarships in LSA and are one of the few units that offer internship stipends to undergraduates and study abroad fellowships for research to graduate students. Still, with the average term abroad costing over $20,000 and the average graduate student fellowship costing over $50,000, we need help.
