The Anne Sturgeon Frenchick '73 and Theodore Thompson Fund for Study Abroad was established in 2017 to create greater accessibility to long-term study abroad opportunities for students who otherwise would not have considered the possibility of international travel and immersion. A $2,500 grant will be given annually to a student attending Lawrence-affiliated or -sponsored international study programs that are a term, semester, or academic year in length. Applicants should have demonstrated financial need and have not previously studied abroad. Priority will be given to applicants who are first generation college students.
Anne Sturgeon Frenchick ’73 graduated from Lawrence with a degree in Slavic Languages and Literature. Anne credits her multiple study abroad experiences with the Eastern European Slavic Trips and studying in Eningen, Germany with shaping the way she sees the world. Anne and Ted established this fund to create greater access to long-term off-campus study opportunities for students that otherwise would have not considered the possibility of studying abroad.
