2017 Critical Language Scholarship Recipients

Over the past ten years, the US Department of State CLS Program has sent over 5,000 American undergraduate and graduate students overseas to learn critical languages all over the world. It provides fully-funded, group-based intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment experiences. CLS Program participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship and apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers. This summer, 6 SLLC students will be added to the list.
