The Reilly French Scholarship was recently created to help support French majors dedicated to the pursuit of French studies beyond the completion of their BA at Sonoma State University. Dr. William Reilly and his wife, Maria, both ardent francophiles and eloquent speakers of French, have taken action to share their passion for the French language and culture by financially supporting the efforts of students interested in pursuing French studies.
The Reilly French Scholarship provides $1000 to declared French majors intending to pursue a PhD in French and/or career goals involving working internationally and within the French culture. The scholarship will be awarded for the 2012-2013 academic year. Scholarship recipients will be selected and notified by the end of November, 2012.
