Louisiana College congratulates French major Justin Branch who was awarded a CODOFIL scholarship to study in Belgium over the month of July.

 The Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, CODOFIL, an organization founded in 1968 by the Louisiana state legislature, has awarded the scholarship to Branch. CODOFIL’s purpose is to help preserve and develop the French language in Louisiana in order to help the state on a cultural, economic, and touristic level.

While in Belgium, Branch studied French conversation and Belgian culture at the Université de Mons.

The cultural enrichment that Branch experienced will help him to better understand the French language as well as help him to become well versed in various world cultures.

Thanks to CODOFIL, seven Louisiana College students have been recipients of the CODOFIL scholarship since 2007.

Founded in 1906, Louisiana College is a private, Baptist coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences with selected professional programs. Built upon the principles of character and learning, the College has a tradition of outstanding academics and is the only Baptist, four-year institution in Louisiana.
