Critical Language Scholarships for Intensive Summer Institutes
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program is a fully funded overseas language and cultural immersion program for American undergraduate and graduate students. With the goal of broadening the base of Americans studying and mastering critical languages and building relationships between the people of the United States and other countries, CLS provides study opportunities to a diverse range of students from across the United States at every level of language learning.
The CLS Program is part of a U.S. government effort to dramatically expand the number of Americans studying and mastering critical foreign languages. Students of diverse disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply. Participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.
Dr. Melinda Grimsley-Smith in the Office of Scholar Development works with students applying for the Critical Language Scholarship.
Set up a meeting with Dr. Grimsley-Smith to discuss your plans for critical language study and scholarship applications by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 270.745.5043.
