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. Please visit the CLS language specific pages for more information:

The deadline to submit a CLS application this year is November 23rd 2015 at 7:59 EST, which is only about a month away.
