A program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) program awards merit-based scholarships to high school students for participation in summer and academic year immersion programs in locations where the eight NSLI-Y languages are spoken. Languages include Arabic, Indonesian, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Korean, Persian (Tajiki), Russian, and Turkish. NSLI-Y immerses participants in the cultural life of the host country, giving them formal and informal language practice and sparking a lifetime interest in foreign languages and cultures.
Details about eligibility, the application timeline and more information about the program can be found at www.nsliforyouth.org.
