WHAT IS ALAS?
In an increasingly interconnected world, students need opportunities to learn foreign languages and gain international exposure more than ever before. This is particularly true with regard to the U.S. and our neighbors in Latin America. English and Spanish are two of the most widely spoken languages in the world, and two of the most influential in the fields of business, healthcare, entertainment and diplomacy.
By offering much needed scholarship funds to students looking to travel, study and work overseas, we aim to equip young people with a foundation of knowledge and skills that will shape the future of the U.S.-Latin America relationship, while providing memorable experiences that will help them live more productive lives.
