Encourage Promising French Students

Give a Donation to the Robert McFarland Memorial Book Awards Fund

The Alliance Française of Hartford has for many years recognized the most promising students of French with a book and a certificate given at a ceremony held in their honor each spring. In the fall of 2006, the Board of Directors of the Alliance Française of Hartford established an Annual Giving Society to recognize charitable contributions for the purpose of supporting the Robert McFarland Memorial Book Awards.

After the death of past AFH President Robert McFarland after a long battle with cancer in May, 2002, memorial contributions from Bob’s family and friends poured into the Alliance as per Bob’s expressed wishes. It was felt fitting to dedicate these funds to the purchase of books for the Book Awards Ceremony and the Awards officially became known as the Robert McFarland Book Award Ceremony.

This fund has continued to support the purchase of books for the past five years, but it needs new benefactors to sustain it. Please consider becoming one of our “bienfaiteurs” and choose to give at one of the following levels:

  • $25 - $99 Ami(e) de St. Exupéry
  • $100 - $199 Ami(e) de Molière
  • $200 - $299 Ami(e) de Balzac
  • $300+ Ami(e) de Hugo

All donors will be recognized on our website and donors at the highest level will be invited to attend the Book Awards reception to be recognized there as well.


AFH Awards
The Harpin-Rohinsky scholarship administered by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving is available to students of French in the Greater Hartford area.  It provides $3,000 which can be renewed for 3 more years of higher education, as long as the recipient studies French every year.

The Robert McFarland Memorial Book Award organized by the AFH each year is presented to deserving middle and high school students from the Greater Hartford area.
