Shelby PowersEight students from Ohio State have been awarded a Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) that will enable them to travel abroad this summer for eight – 10 weeks of intensive foreign language study. The CLS program is part of a U.S. government effort to expand dramatically the number of Americans studying and mastering critical foreign languages.

Shelby Powers, one of Ohio State’s scholarship awardees, will study Arabic at the Arab American Language Institute in Tangier, Morocco. “Receiving this scholarship had been my goal since I started studying Arabic my first semester of college,” she recently wrote in her blog. “I had applied for it in November of 2015 and got news in March of 2016, so it required a lot of patience and uncertainty on my part. Traveling without friends or family and living in a Moroccan home for two months will be far outside of my comfort zone, but also hugely beneficial not only to my Arabic abilities and cultural knowledge, but to my personal growth, adaptability and independence.”
