Critical Language Scholarships

The Critical Language Scholarships offer intensive summer language institutes overseas in eleven critical-need foreign languages (Arabic, Azerbaijan, Bangla/Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Turkish, and Urdu). U.S. citizen undergraduate, MA and PhD students are eligible to participate in beginning, intermediate, and advanced level summer language programs at American Overseas Research Centers. Recipients of this scholarship will be expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period and later apply their critical language skills in their professional careers.

Language Flagship Fellowships

The Language Flagship Fellowships offer a limited number of fellowships to qualified American students interested in receiving full financial support to participate in one of the Flagship Programs in Arabic, Central Asian Turkic languages, Korean, Mandarin, Persian, and Russian.
