Purpose: The fund is maintained to assist a declared JCU French or German minor, or a declared Spanish major with the financing of his/her summer, semester, or year abroad in order to deepen and broaden his/her linguistic and cultural background. Such use of the fund is most representative of Dr. Fabien’s humanistic and cosmopolitan educational ideal and a worthy monument to his contributions to the education of countless JCU graduates. The grant is offered every academic year.

Contributors: In the early 1990s, friends and alumnae/alumni of Dr. Fabien, and of the German Section of the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Cultures, contributed these funds to be applied exclusively to further the educational goal of a JCU German language major. Today, the Fabien scholarship is open to minors in French or German. It has also been made available to majors in Spanish.
