Critical Language Scholarship is Now Accepting Applications

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce the opening of the scholarship competition for the 2015 Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program in thirteen critical foreign languages.

Students can connect with Department of State representatives at the following events: 

U.S. Department of State Internships – Information Session: Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014  5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the CLA building (Julius Glickman Conference Center, CLA 1.302E)

Fall 2014 Career and Internship Fair, hosted by Liberal Arts Career Services: Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014  11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Texas Union Ballroom

The CLS Program is a program of the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. It is a fully-funded overseas language program for American undergraduate and graduate students. With the goal of broadening the base of Americans studying and mastering critical languages and to build 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 thirteen CLS languages are: Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bangla, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Turkish, and Urdu.

Please note that participants in the CLS Program are not required to have any experience studying critical languages for most of the thirteen languages. Arabic, Chinese, Persian, Russian, and Japanese institutes have language prerequisites, which can be found on the CLS website: http://www.clscholarship.org.

The CLS Program seeks participants with diverse interests, from a wide variety of fields of study, backgrounds and career paths, with the purpose of representing the full diversity of professional, regional, cultural and academic backgrounds in the United States. Thus, students from all academic disciplines, including business, engineering, law, medicine, science, social sciences, arts and humanities are encouraged to apply.

There is no service requirement for CLS Alumni after the program. However, participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period, and later apply their critical language skills in their professional careers. Participants are selected based on their commitment to language learning and plans to apply their language skills to their future academic or professional pursuits.

Please note that CLS is an intensive group-based language program.

The application is now live and available online at:  http://www.clscholarship.org

Applications will be due November 12, 2014 by 8:00 pm EST.

Prior to preparing their application, interested students should review the full eligibility and application information on the CLS Program website:http://www.clscholarship.org/information-for/applicants.
