Frank Herrera Scholarship Fund
The Herrera Scholarship was established by Mrs. Mary Betty Herrera to honor her husband’s work as an educator at WVU. Mrs. Herrera, herself a teacher of languages, hopes the scholarship will assist students with backgrounds similar to her husband’s.
Students applying for a Herrera Scholarship must demonstrate
- Financial need
- A major in World Languages
- A 3.0 GPA in the language of study, and a 2.8 GPA overall
Preference will be given to students who demonstrate
- Native Spanish-speaking ability
- Foreign-born status
- WV residency
In the event no foreign-born student with native Spanish-speaking ability applies, a qualified student majoring in WVU’s Spanish program may be awarded this scholarship.
Grant money may be used for study abroad.
