Scholarships Check this site for scholarships for students who are studying French, as well as links to Scholarship America and Washboard, where you will find hundreds of other scholarships for which you might be eligible,and to the French departments of 4-year colleges in Washington.

We offer two kinds of scholarships, scholarships for high school seniors and college students living in Washington state to study French at a college or university in Washington, and Goldmark Scholarships for students who want to study in Nantes, France. Goldmark scholarships are awarded by Seattle-Nantes Sister City Association in honor of the Goldmark Family of Seattle.

Seattle-Nantes Sister City Association is composed of individuals and organizations interested in promoting close ties between the people of Seattle and Nantes, France.

Its goals are to advance educational, cultural, and commercial relations between Seattle and Nantes, and to inform and educate the public about our sister city. To further these goals, the association established Seattle-Nantes Dollars for Scholars to encourage young people to study French language and culture and build a desire to visit or study in Nantes. +
