Staff from the U.S. Department of State, Critical Language Scholarship (CLS), Mobility International USA (MIUSA), and a CLS alum speak about access to the Critical Language Scholarship for applicants with disabilities.
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), is a fully-funded overseas language and cultural immersion program for American undergraduate and graduate students. With the goal of broadening the base of Americans studying and mastering critical languages and building relationships between the people of the United States and other countries, CLS provides opportunities to a diverse range of students from across the United States at every level of language learning.
“I want to be very active with Chinese and American relations, whether one-on-one, or at a greater scale. One of the first steps towards that is to learn the other country’s language. It helps my career, but it shows a bigger gesture of respect and encouraging good relations", Stephanie Collins, CLS-China alum with a disability
