Scholarship opportunities for intensive language study through Arizona State University’s Critical Languages Institute

 

Scholarship opportunities for intensive language study through Arizona State University’s Critical Languages Institute. 

In the summer of 2023, the Critical Languages Institute (CLI) at Arizona State University will offer intensive training in 14 less-commonly-taught languages: Albanian, Armenian, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Hebrew, Indonesian, Kazakh, Macedonian, Persian, Polish, Russian, Tatar, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Uzbek. 

Government agencies, businesses and humanitarian and development organizations with international missions, all value language skills and cross-cultural experience among employees.  Relevant language training also strengthens applications for Fulbright, Boren, and other fellowships for research or fieldwork support. 

Classes at ASU’s CLI meet for four hours a day, 5 days a week and students earn from 8 to 13 transferable credit hours. Experienced native-speaker faculty, small class sizes, and a focus on communication all play a role in fostering student success; OPI exit testing has demonstrated that participants make substantial gains in comprehension and fluency. 

Thanks to a range of financial awards including FLAS and Project GO scholarships, Title VIII fellowships, and private named scholarships, CLI makes intensive language study and study abroad accessible to participants of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. In 2022, over 70% of CLI students received some level of need-based or merit-based funding.
