Awards and scholarships
The Department of French offers a number of academic awards to meritorious students. These awards are conferred at a Departmental ceremony in the spring.

Marcelle Cendres Sandhu Memorial Prize
This prize was established by the colleagues, friends, and students of the late Marcelle Cendres Sandhu. It is awarded annually to a French major or honours student who achieves excellence in third (FR3045) or fourth (FR4046) year French grammar courses.
French Department Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded to students entering the third or fourth year of a major
or honours program in French, and who have spent a year studying in France.
The award is based on meritorious performance in French classes. At the
discretion of the Department, the scholarship may also be awarded to outstanding
students who have not studied abroad.
Ruth Murray Scholarship
In memory of Mrs. Ruth Murray this scholarship is awarded to students who are academically sound and who are participating in a departmental program abroad. At the discretion of the Department, the fund may also be used to provide financial assistance for on-campus students majoring in French who have demonstrated above average academic ability.
Sabah Metlej French Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded to a student who is completing a degree in French while raising a family, and who shows academic excellence and enthusiasm toward the study of French. If there are no students that meet the first criteria, the remaining criteria will be used to select a candidate.
