Foreign Language Scholarship
About the Foreign Language Scholarship
Each year, St. John Fisher College offers two Foreign Language Scholarships to high school seniors to recognize achievement in foreign language as a sound preparation for college work.
Scholarship recipients will receive $3,000 annually, over four years, if they complete two foreign language courses during their first year at Fisher and maintain a minimum 3.00 cumulative GPA.
These scholarships are available to all high school seniors with proficiency in French, German, Italian, or Spanish, and a minimum 1000 SAT (Math and Critical Reading) or 22 ACT composite score.
Students of all majors are eligible for this scholarship, with priority given to those majoring in a Foreign Language. (Fisher offers majors in French and Spanish).
Candidates must be nominated by a teacher or counselor and demonstrate:
- Excellence in scholarship, character, leadership, and service
- Minimum composite score of 1000 (Math and Critical Reading) on the SAT or 22 on the ACT
- No less than 85% cumulative GPA (schools using a different grading scale must convert their notation to a 100-point scale)
- Communicative ability in the language with complete speech utterances beyond the present tense
To qualify, students must apply for admission to the College and be nominated by a teacher or counselor; the nomination package must be postmarked by January 24.
