The Romance Languages Fund covers the costs of the many special events in the Department that promote the study of cultures, languages, and literatures in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. It promotes the intellectual exchange of ideas among students, faculty, members of the academic community, and the public. Events sponsored by the Fund include:

  • Visiting artists, authors, and scholars
  • The UGA Language Communities Lecture Series
  • The Department of Romance Languages Annual Awards Ceremony
  • Travel funds for graduate students to perform research

The Fund exists thanks to donations from individuals. Donations can be made by personal check or, if you are a University employee, you can participate in the payroll deduction program. All gifts are tax deductible.
