CODOFIL Scholarships 2018 [fr]

For more than 35 years, CODOFIL has maintained its scholarship program thanks to its foreign government and university partners who continue to offer scholarships to Louisianan students, teachers, and professionals and welcome them to their respective countries and campuses. The purpose of these scholarships is to offer a French immersion experience to those in need of improving their French language skills and cultural awareness for their current and future careers in Louisiana. Therefore, these scholarships are reserved for students, teachers, and professionals who are Louisiana residents and who meet the other eligibility requirements.
