Center for Study of Europe announces 2004-2005 language fellowships

The Center for the Study of Europe at Brigham Young University has announced the recipients of its 2004 Foreign Language Area Studies fellowships.

The 2004-05 recipients are Joseph Baumgarten, Leona Fisher, Melissa Humes, Benjamin Johnson, James Krause, Jonathan McCollum, Katie Tuft, Spencer Viernes and Heidi Wilde.

The United States Department of Education funds the fellowships, which are awarded to BYU graduate students in any field for either the academic year or for summer language study.

The academic year fellowship offers full tuition plus a stipend of $14,000 which is intended to allow recipients to devote themselves to full-time academic work in their chosen foreign language, in selected area studies courses and in their own graduate program of study.

The summer language fellowship offers full-tuition plus a stipend of $2,500 and often supports enrollment in language programs in Europe.

The fellowships are intended to encourage students to consider entering public or government service, although such service is not required.

BYU recipients speak a number of foreign languages, including Arabic, Catalan, Danish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Russian and Yiddish. More than half of the recipients knew at least three foreign languages prior to their language training with the Foreign Language Area Studies fellowships.
