Critical Language Scholarship Program Are you interested in learning or advancing your ability in a language of critical need? The Critical Language Scholarship Program (CLS) aims to increase the number and diversity of U.S. students who undertake studies of languages including Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, Russian, and Turkish. The grant covers airfare, room and board, courses, activities, and a stipend. Its summer programs are the equivalent of one full year of college language study.

The deadline is Nov. 17, 2020 for summer 2021 programs. It is highly encouraged to consult with the campus CLS advisor as you prepare your application materials. The CLS advisor can be reached at
