Rising Star Scholarship

The Rising Star Scholarship is an opportunity for students in translation, localization, and interpreting programs around the world to participate in GALA's annual Language of Business Conference.  Attending the conference is a great opportunity for students to learn about important trends from translation and localization thought-leaders and make connections with industry professionals. Two students are selected by the Rising Star Scholarship Committee each year.

Scholarship details differ each year. For more information about a specific year's scholarship, please visit the conference website.
