Will Arabic, Chinese, or Russian be important in your career?

The U.S. State Department's Critical Language Scholarship program has just launched a new opportunity, CLS Spark, which will provide fully-funded, virtual language training in the following:

  • Chinese (Mandarin), for students who’ve had one year of previous study.
  • Arabic, for students who’ve had no previous study.
  • Russian, for students who’ve had no previous study.

The program begins this fall and entails ~18 hours of language instruction per month for 11 weeks each semester, as well as monthly cultural activities. In addition to funded activities, participants also receive a $300 stipend, along with other perks.

Deadline:  May 26

To learn more, visit clscholarship.org/spark.

The program is open only to undergraduates who are U.S. citizens and who will not have an opportunity to study the chosen language at Ball State.

To apply, call 765-285-1024 to schedule an appointment with Barb Stedman, Director of National and International Scholarships.  The application requires several weeks of time and effort, so call today!
