Critical Langauages Scholarship (CLS) Program
Deadline: November 15, 2011
The United States Department of State is pleased to announce the scholarship competition for the 2012 Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program for overseas intensive summer language institutes in thirteen critical need foreign languages. CLS institutes provide fully-funded group-based intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment experiences for seven to ten weeks for U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students. Students may apply for one language, and will be placed at institute sites based on language evaluations after selection.
Languages offered: Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bangla/Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Turkish, and Urdu.
Interested applicants should review the full eligibility and application information on the CLS Program website: www.clscholarship.org/applicants. Arabic, Chinese, Persian, Russian, and Japanese institutes have language prerequisites, which can be found here: http://www.clscholarship.org/applicants.htm#prerequisites.
Students from all academic disciplines, including business, engineering, law, medicine, sciences, and humanities are encouraged to apply. While there is no service requirement attached to CLS Program awards, participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period, and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.
The CLS Program has planned outreach events at universities across the U.S. in fall 2011. Please visit the CLS webpage or our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/CLScholarship, as we may be coming to your institution.
For more information about the CLS Program and to access the on-line application, please visit the CLS website: http://www.clscholarship.org.
