Jean M. French Travel Award

The Jean M. French Travel Award was established in 2011 to assist second semester juniors in researching their senior project.  Money for this award was generously donated by Bard art history alumni in honor of Prof. Jean M. French, who retired in 2011.  It was her wish that juniors could use the summer before their senior year to do valuable research at archives, libraries and locations both in the United States and abroad.  The first of what will be an annual award went to Sebastian Sarmiento-Moreno. Sebastian will travel to Paris this summer to conduct artist interviews.   His senior project will deal with Latin American kinetic art.
