Smith College Club of France contributes to JYA Paris

SCCF President Lois Grjebine '52 hands check to Professor Peter Bloom, director of the JYA Program in Paris.

This month, the Smith College Club of France (SCCF) presented a check for 1,000 euros to be used by the Junior Year Abroad Program in Paris. The gift will help individual students pay for cultural activities while they study in France. Recipients will be chosen at the discretion of the JYA Program Director and will be distributed to students specifically to help them discover the richness and diversity of French culture, namely to buy theatre tickets or to travel to monuments outside of Paris.

At an event on October 12, SCCF President Lois Grjebine ’52 was able to present the check to Peter Bloom, current director of the JYA Paris program.  Bloom came to Smith College as music instructor 1970, and in 2000 became the Grace Jarcho Ross 1933 Professor of Humanities.

The Paris JYA program is currently accepting applications for its 2012-2013 program.
