The Department of Languages, Literatures, & Cultural Studies offers a number of awards, bursaries, prizes and scholarships in each of its languages. Some awards are based on selection and require no application, and others, such as bursaries, are open for application in the fall through the  PAWS Scholarships and Bursaries channel. Book prizes are awarded to top students in certain classes or areas of study.

Each year, we celebrate our students’ success and outstanding achievements during the previous year of their studies at our annual Meet and Greet held in the fall of the academic year.
