Department representative Maggie Dankert, Rachael Ainsworth (representing winner Kira Webster), department chair Silva Navia and Rosita-winning student Taylor Snead celebrate the 2015 Rosita Awards.

Each spring, the Department of International Languages and Cultures (ILC) in the Webster University College of Arts & Sciences recognizes two exemplary students with the Rosita Awards, a departmental scholarship created by professor emeritus Consuelo Gallagher in 1999.

This year, the ILC had a record number of applicants with over 33 students eligible for the two prizes. These dedicated students spoke eight different languages. Taylor Snead (German) and Kira Webster (French/Japanese) were selected as this year’s winners.

Departmental faculty, staff and students gathered Friday, April 3, to salute the winners. The Department is proud to have students who so wholeheartedly embrace the spirit multiculturalism.

About the Rosita Awards

The Rosita Awards are a departmental scholarship created by Webster University professor emeritus Consuelo E. Gallagher in honor of her mother, Rosita Uribe of Venezuela. The awards were established in 1999 to reward students who demonstrate commitment to international awareness, cultural understanding and language studies. To be eligible, students must have committed to studying one or more foreign languages for over four semesters.
