The Program is part of the National Security Language Initiative (NSLI), a U.S. government interagency effort to expand dramatically the number of Americans studying and mastering critical need foreign languages.

Scholarship recipients – U.S. citizen undergraduate, Master's and Ph.D. students and recent graduates – receive funding to participate in beginning, intermediate and advanced level summer language programs at American Overseas Research Centers and affiliated partners. Recipients are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period and later apply their critical language skills in their professional careers.

Interested applicants should review the full eligibility and application information on the CLS Program website: https://ais.americancouncils.org/cgi-bin/WebObjects/AIR-Brand-cls.

Arabic, Chinese, Persian, Russian, and Japanese institutes have language prerequisites, which can be found here: http://www.clscholarship.org/qv_applicant.php.

All program costs are covered for participants. This includes travel between the student's home city and program location, pre-departure orientation costs, applicable visa fees, room, board, travel within country and all entrance fees for program activities. Note: U.S. passport fees will not be paid by the scholarship.

Émigré Memorial German Internship Program
March

www.cdsintl.org/fellowshipsabroad/emgip.php

The Émigré Memorial German Internship Program–German State Parliaments (EMGIP) is a fellowship program that provides U.S. and Canadian students with internships at a German state parliament (Landtag). Internships afford students an excellent opportunity to gain government work experience, improve their advanced German language skills, and learn about German culture firsthand. EMGIP is ideal for students planning on pursuing careers at a regional level of government in the U.S. or Canada, or who have an interest in a specific policy issue such as the environment, education and / or healthcare.

EMGIP runs three times a year—fall, spring, and early summer—for one to three months, depending on elections, holiday schedules and state offices’ preferences. While participants have some flexibility as to when they would like to do their internship, late summer and the winter holiday season are not feasible.

CDS places participants in internships customized to their field of interest. Tasks for interns are as diverse as the placements and the participants. Some state offices expect interns to work independently, while others prefer to supervise their work closely. Though it will be the participant’s responsibility to negotiate their direct, everyday work conditions, CDS will try to assist whenever possible. The participant’s Lebenslauf will be sent to several placement possibilities at various Landtage. Some may choose to contact the participant directly to conduct an interview, most likely in German, before offering that individual an internship position. Participants should always keep CDS informed of all communication! We expect participants to be open-minded and consider every offer carefully, as they are competing with hundreds of native Germans for these prestigious internship opportunities. Besides gaining professional experience and learning about the government from inside out, the participants will also experience German culture, and dramatically improve their language skills.

The Princess Grace Awards
April

http://www.pgfusa.org/

The Princess Grace Awards is a national program dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging artists in theater, dance, and film to realize their career goals by awarding grants in the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships.

The PGA awards the following:

  • scholarships for theater and dance students
  • scholarship grants to support undergraduate or graduate thesis films
  • apprenticeships for theater artists at non-profit companies
  • fellowships to support choreographers at non-profit dance companies
  • a fellowship for an individual playwright at New Dramatists.

Grant amounts generally range from $5,000 - $25,000. However, grant requests should be based on actual figures for annual salary (or artistic fee), tuition, or thesis project costs, whichever is applicable, and require substantiation (letter of verification from nominator). All grants (with the exception of the Statue Award and Special Project Grants) are given directly to the organizations, not the individual.

Application deadlines vary by discipline.
