Startalk Scholarships for Summer Language Study at Beloit College

Summer Intensive Arabic or Chinese Language Study at Beloit http://www.summerlanguages.com/startalk

The STARTALK scholarships are competitive scholarships for undergraduates from diverse backgrounds and talented high school students interested in studying Arabic or Chinese in summer 2009 through Beloit College's Center for Language Studies (CLS), a nationally recognized intensive language program.

By allowing you to accelerate your study of these critical languages, the full-tuition scholarships (a $6,366 value) will help you achieve higher levels of proficiency more quickly and, as a result, provide you with the chance to pursue more meaningful study, in the areas of Asian or Middle Eastern Studies.

Our residential program features superb instructors, 26 hours per week of classroom study, an integrated approach to language and culture, and a variety of cultural activities.

We are very excited about this program and are looking for high-achieving students interested in taking advantage of this great opportunity to study these critical languages.

The summer 2009 eight-week session runs from June 13 to August 7. Students completing the program will receive three units of
Beloit College credit. The cost for room and board ($1,795) is not covered by these scholarships. Award recipients will be required to live on campus.

Students must be at least 17 years old to qualify for a STARTALK scholarship. Qualified students may apply by submitting the CLS online application (www.summerlanguages.com), an official transcript, and two letters of recommendation. A minimum grade point average of 3.0 is required. Acceptance announcements are made on a rolling basis.

Please contact Patricia L. Zody, Director, at 608.363.2777 or cls@beloit.edu for more information.
