Scholarships are quite plentiful from federal sources to college scholarships. There is no limit to the career path for a
foreign language major since nearly all fields require professionals versed in a foreign language. As the world becomes
more connected, business and industry become increasingly multicultural and multi-lingual, hence the demand for foreign language experts.
