For students of French, this fund supports study abroad opportunities at one of France’s largest universities.
Studying in France provides a wealth of benefits for students who are majoring in French. As an immersion experience, study abroad helps these students quickly gain further fluency in speaking and writing French. It allows students to experience the French culture firsthand, in a way that simply isn't possible through classwork and research at UB. And — like any study abroad experience — it helps students become global citizens.
Established in 1991 by family and friends, this fund provides annual scholarships in memory of Maria E. Becker. Scholarship receipients are University at Buffalo students of French with a minimum GPA of 2.5, who are accepted to the SUNY sponsored study abroad program at the University of Grenoble, France.
