Departmental Scholarships


Each year, the Department of Spanish Studies formally recognizes and awards scholarships to outstanding Spanish majors and/or minors in an all-university awards banquet held every spring semester. The two scholarships that our department offers are the Elizabeth Myatt-Gamma Sigma Scholarship and the Gertrude Looney Scholarship.  The funds awarded to scholarship winners are used to offset tuition costs. To apply for these scholarships, you must be a “declared” Spanish major or minor and be in good academic standing by maintaining a 3.0 overall GPA.  Students receiving other outside or institutional scholarships (academic, endowed, Dyess, etc.) are not eligible to apply.
