Goldman/Pendleton Scholarship for Internship Abroad

Chad Goldman, an LWB alumnus, and his partner, Brian Pendleton, have contributed an endowment to the Department of MFLL. The purpose of the endowment is as follows:

    “…to fund scholarship awards to students who complete internships related to community service. The scholarship funds are intended to cover academic expenses, such as tuition, and/or expenses related to travel, room and board for students performing internships abroad.”

Selection Criteria

Preference will be given to LWB students who plan an internship abroad, especially if that internship involves community service or a community‐based project, but consideration will also be given to study abroad programs that include an independent research project (designed by the student with faculty guidance and approved prior to departure).

Factors that will be taken in consideration for the selection process:

  • Internship project linked to purpose of fund
  • Language GPA (minimum 3.00 in all languages)
  • Overall GPA (minimum 2.70)
  • Overall good citizenship in the university community (as demonstrated in resume and cover letter)

Application Process

The student will submit an application including:

  • a cover letter (1 page maximum)
  • a current resume
  • an internship proposal or a research project statement (1 page maximum)
  • a budget (itemizing how funds will be allocated)

Applicants should send their application package by April 15 (for the fall and summer semesters) and by November 15 (for the spring semester) via email to:
