The Herta M. Stephenson Scholarship was established by a Charitable Gift Trust in 1991 by the late Dr. F. Otto Haas to benefit students in the German program at Saint Joseph’s University. It supports undergraduate study on campus as well as summer, semester, and junior year abroad studies. Many students have studied in German-speaking countries in Europe since the endowment was created.

The Arthur R. Marsilio Scholarship for Study Abroad provides $2,500 to a Saint Joseph’s University undergraduate participating in a study abroad or study tour program in Italy, Greece, France, Germany, Spain, or Latin America. Awarded on the basis of both need and merit, this scholarship rotates every year by language program.

For more information about the Arthur R. Marsilio Scholarship and about more general scholarships for students studying abroad, please consult the page of the Center for International Programs.
