The Award was established in 1996 for the purpose of enabling students of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish to undertake a period of formal study or internship for credit (minimum of four weeks) in a country where the language is spoken as the first language, thereby providing an opportunity for cultural immersion and first-hand experience of the language, and to provide additional encouragement to pursue study at postgraduate level in languages and literatures. The Award is funded by the Faculty of Arts.
