Applications for the Critical Language Scholarships (CLS) are now available and due on Friday, November 15, 8pm. This program provides full scholarship (tuition, room, board, travel, pre-departure orientation) for a in-country summer intensive language program that is equivalent to one academic year of college level language.
Programs are available in Chinese and Japanese at the intermediate (3rd year) and advanced (4th year) level and in Korean at beginning (1st year), advanced beginning (2nd year), intermediate (3rd year) and advanced (4th year) levels.
The Critical Language Scholarship Program seeks participants from a variety of fields, backgrounds and career paths, with the goal of building a cadre of Americans who speak critical languages at high levels, in government, business, arts and culture, science and engineering, health and medicine, education, research and other fields.
Please note that CLS is an intensive group-based language program. Students are required to attend all classes, excursions, lectures, and all other scheduled program activities, except in cases of illness or other excused absences. Failure to comply with these policies will result in dismissal from the CLS Program.
