For French teachers and students, we offer two scholarships.

Nina Walls Scholarship

The Nina Walls Scholarship, which is made possible by the Alliance Française Cultural & Educational Fund, Inc. enables recipients to attend a month-long summer study session at an Alliance Française in a francophone country and to live with a French-speaking family there. One of the major purposes of the Nina Walls Scholarship is to give Middle Tennessee French teachers the opportunity to absorb French culture while improving their fluency in the language.

The annual scholarship pays for the tuition at the Alliance Française, room, and half board with a family, and contributes $1,500 towards airfare or other travel.
