COFLT Student Scholarhips

These scholarships recognize outstanding commitment to the study of a second language. COFLT awards up to four (4) scholarships of $1000 each under this program: 
  • one for a senior at a high school with 500 students or fewer, 
  • two for seniors at high schools of any size, 
  • one for a student at the college/university level. 
The deadline for scholarship applications is April 1. Applicants will be notified of their award status by May 1. These funds are intended to pay for tuition, fees, and other official college or university expenses associated with pursuing a formal degree program.

ONLY applications submitted via the COFLT website will be considered for COFLT honors and awards.  Please note that incomplete applications will not receive consideration. 

All inquiries and contact regarding awards should be sent to:
