Department Initiatives

Program Donations

Thanks to your contributions, we have been able to launch a few new programs. Please continue to support our students and the professional development of teachers of Italian.

Graduate Student Travel Grants

Participation in international conferences and visiting archives to complete original research is an integral part of our graduate students’ professional development. Please continue to support excellence in research!

Professional Development Certificate Online

The unique format of this program is tailored to high school teachers of Italian and helps them to update materials, content, and approaches to pedagogy in the Italian classroom. The cost of the certificate is $750. Please help us to subsidize a few fellowships for teachers completing the certificate.

Study Abroad Scholarships for Undergraduate Students

In these difficult times, our students often cannot afford to travel and study abroad, and we regularly receive requests for financial support. Even relatively small scholarships encourage students to save and embark on this life-changing experience. Make the difference!

Name Awards for Essays

Essay prizes acknowledge excellence in writing both at the undergraduate level and at the graduate level. With a sustained commitment of $100 each year, the prize would carry the name of the Alumnus/a or of the person you wish to honor.

We appreciate your support.
