Three foreign language students recently received national awards this spring:
Marissa Mitchell and Kelsea Riddick have been awarded Teaching Assistant Program (TAPIF) grants from the French Ministry of Education to serve as English Teaching Assistants in France for the 2015-16 year.
Emma Cate Whitefield has been awarded a grant from the Austrian Ministry of Education to serve as an English Teaching Assistant in Austria for 2015-16.
These grants are based, among other factors, on the student’s ability in the respective country’s language, as well as their knowledge of its culture. Mitchell, Riddick and Whitefield represent the high quality of work, both in teaching and in advising, that occurs in the Department of Foreign Languages at Belmont.
