Nine U.Va. Students Win Scholarships to Study Languages Overseas

Nine University of Virginia students are among approximately 575 U.S. undergraduate and graduate students who will be going overseas this summer to study languages with Critical Language Scholarships from the U.S. Department of State.

These students will spend seven to 10 weeks in intensive language institutes and in cultural immersion in countries where these languages are spoken. Participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship and apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.
