Every year, on May 5th people around the world celebrate Portuguese Language Day and the Culture of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP).
This year, the Portuguese Section of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures celebrates that date on April 27th, by honouring students who excelled in Portuguese Language and Culture courses during the academic year with two existing scholarships – Portugal-Gaspar Corte Real, and Portuguese Community of Canada –  and two new scholarships – Azores Airlines - Immersion in the Portuguese Language, and Caixa Geral de Depósitos – Summer Course in Portugal. The ceremony will be followed with a screening of the film “Língua – Lives in Portuguese”, by Victor Lopes.  The ceremony will take place in Hamelin Hall, room 509, at 6 pm.
