SCHOLARSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
 

 

 

In Spring 2014, the AFF will once again award scholarships to college and high school students who are studying French in the S.J. Valley.  Last year we awarded four college-level scholarships and five to high school students. They were an outstanding lot. The membership can be proud of these accomplished young students.

 

As in the past, you may have a scholarship named in your honor. This year, the Alliance Fran�aise will award up to five high school scholarships, from $350 up to $750 each, and up to three college scholarships, from $1,000 to $1,500 each. To make it even easier, AFF is willing to accumulate and hold your donations over a period of five years until the required amount is accumulated, and then to award the scholarship. 

 

More information is available on our website: http://www.affresno.org/scholarship.html
