Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Information Sessions
These information sessions are open to all undergraduate and graduate students in all majors.

This scholarship provides recipients with a fully-funded, summer intensive language study abroad experience. Recipients study one of fifteen critical languages, as determined by the U.S. Dept. of State.

Information sessions will be held virtually on:

* Tuesday, August 25 -- 3:30-4:45pm (CLS + Boren Awards)

* Friday, August 28 -- 1-2pm (CLS only)

The first of these sessions will offer information about both the Critical Language Scholarship and the Boren Awards, while the second will focus only on the Critical Language Scholarship. If you register for the combined info session here, you do not need to also register on the Boren Awards Information Session registration form (or vice versa).

Zoom links will be provided within 24 hours of each session to those who register.
