Subject: French Ling:MA Teaching Assistantship at Arizona State University, USA

I am writing to ask your help in recruiting an outstanding student for
our Master of Arts program in French. Recently, the French section of
the Department of Languages and Literatures has received two University
Graduate Scholar awards. Students who are recruited for that award
receive a two-year Teaching Assistant contract valued at $11,400, a
tuition remission worth $1320, and an additional $2,500 for a total of
$15,220 in aid per year. If you have an outstanding student who may be
interested in attending a different school, who wants to continue
learning about French but is not sure about continuing for a Ph.D.,
please encourage that student to apply for the UGS.

The French section offers a wide variety of classes, including classes
in francophone studies, translation, and linguistics. We have close
ties with the Department of Humanities, the Interdisciplinary Committee
on Linguistics, and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance
Studies. In addition, we offer exchange programs for our M.A. students
with the Universit´┐Ż Catholique in Lille, France, and with Universit´┐Ż
Laval in Quebec City, Quebec.

Information about our program can be found on our Web Site:
Application forms for the Graduate College and for Teaching
Assistantships may be found at and respectively.
Please ask students to specify that they are applying for a UGS. Please
send applications by February 21, 2000 to the Graduate Director, Dr.
Helene Ossipov at

Thank you very much for your help in identifying and supporting
outstanding students.
