The Liberty Language Service Annual Scholarship is dedicated to supporting the next generation of language translators and interpreters in government, health care, legal and educational settings. We are a nation of immigrants, and our industry provides us with a unique opportunity to help facilitate communication between two parties that wouldn't understand each other without bridging that gap in communication. Liberty is proud to be an organization performing these services that offer direct benefits to our society.
Liberty Language Services offers a scholarship of $500 to a college or university undergrad or graduate student who also understands the importance of providing interpretation services and is passionate about giving back to their community. We seek a strong individual whose career goals include helping bridge gaps in communication through language translation or interpreting.
