Ds Scholarship

French major earns Gilman Scholarship Award to study in France

“Applying for the scholarship really has given me more confidence,” Weaver said. “Because of this, I feel more ready to apply to graduate schools, and that doesn’t look like such a scary process.”

Weaver credits receiving the scholarship to the mentorship and guidance provided by Jenny Rosti, Roanoke College’s director of major scholarships and fellowships, and adjunct senior lecturer.

“I couldn’t have done this without Ms. Rosti,” Weaver said. “She told me exactly what I needed to do and was with me every step of the way.”

Describing Weaver as a “serious student of French,” Rosti identified Weaver as an ideal candidate for the award and guided her through the application requirements and deadlines. For Rosti, the Gilman scholarship is “one of my favorite awards.”

“It has enabled so many of our students to have this opportunity,” Rosti said. “Having so many of our students win this award helps the College’s reputation. I go to national conferences and people know” about Roanoke College.

As for the future, Weaver is considering a variety of options post-graduation, including applying to graduate school at Tulane University, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Virginia to study teaching, or applying for a teaching assistant program in France sponsored by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.

Between applying for the Gilman Scholarship and the impending application process for graduate school, Weaver said her foundation at Roanoke College has helped her manage the challenges of those tasks.

“My classes at Roanoke prepared me for applying for this scholarship,” said Weaver. “The rigor from Roanoke gave me the base for this arduous task of applying and what’s to come in life.”
