Three graduate students studying critical languages abroad through U.S. State Department grants

Three CU-Boulder graduate students have received the prestigious U.S. Department of State Critical Languages Scholarship for the summer. 

With the award, Stephanie Landblom is studying Hindi in India, Elise Pizzi is studying Chinese in China, and Kelsey Thibdeau is studying Arabic in Morocco. 

The highly competitive CLS program supports intensive study in 13 languages deemed critically important by the U.S. Department of State, seven of which are taught in CU-Boulder’s Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations -- Hindi, Urdu, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic and Persian. The other languages are Azerbaijani, Bangla, Indonesian, Punjabi, Turkish and Russian.

CU-Boulder's Office of International Education encourages students to apply for the prestigious CLS scholarship.
