Esclarmonde de Foix Memorial Travel Scholarship

This prize is established by Tamara Bernstein, a student at The University of Winnipeg from 1976 to 1978. Esclarmonde de Foix, a 12th century aristocrat in what is now southern France, was a prominent convert to the persecuted religious sect known as catharism. In naming the award after her, the donor wishes to pay tribute to a medieval woman of evident moral courage, self-confidence, and intellectual vigour. It will be awarded annually to a student who has completed a minimum of 30 credit hours, including at least 6 credit hours in French, for studies in French language or French literature in France at a university, recognized language institute, or any other institution approved by the Department of French Studies.
