The Dorothy Larned International Scholarship Fund was established in 1964 by the Class of 1939 to aid international students at Framingham State College. The award was named to honor Miss Dorothy Larned who came to Framingham Normal School to teach French in 1929. She served many years as Dean of Women until her retirement in 1961. The scholarship initially was intended to cover the students’ room and board expenses so that they might experience residence life at an American college.
