Critical Language Scholarship now open – deadline Nov 15.

As also promoted on the Midd Fellowships Office page:

The application for the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program–a fully-funded summer study abroad program–is now open!

The CLS Program is an intensive overseas language and cultural immersion program for American students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities. Students spend eight to ten weeks abroad studying one of 14 critical languages (see below). The program includes intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment experiences designed to promote rapid language gains.

CLS, a program of the U.S. Department of State, is part of a wider government initiative to expand the number of Americans studying and mastering foreign languages that are critical to national security and economic prosperity. CLS plays an important role in preparing students for the 21st century’s globalized workforce and increasing national competitiveness.

The application is now live and available online at:

Applications are due November 15, 2017 by 7:59pm EST.
