Study Abroad Scholarship

The CLE Study Abroad Scholarship will reopen for Spring 22. We are following the guidelines posted at the Study Abroad website regarding program cancelations and travel restrictions. JHU’s travel policy does not permit students to participate in or use university funding for experiences at locations with U.S. DOS/CDC Level 3 or 4 advisories, therefore CLE scholarship funding will not be awarded for such programs as your health and well-being are top priority. We will, of course, continue to monitor the decisions made by the university and study abroad office.

Study abroad scholarships are available to students studying a language offered in CLE overseas during the academic year (fall, spring, and summer). A minimum of $1,000 will be awarded to individuals excelling in acquisition of the target language and demonstrating outstanding potential to maximize their language skills by studying abroad.

The scholarship is available for students who:

  • Have studied at least one year (two terms) of a language offered in CLE (Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, or Russian);
  • Have already been accepted to a study abroad program to continue study of the language in the 2021–2022 academic year (spring or summer);
  • Receive a strong letter of support and recommendation from the instructor(s) of the language at CLE.

The application and supporting documents should be submitted by email to no later than:

  • Spring 2022: Wednesday, December 1, 2021
  • Summer 2022: Monday, April 4, 2022

Awards will be made based on review of applications by the CLE director and language faculty.
