The CLS 2017 Application is Closed

Thank you everyone who participated in the 2017 CLS Program recruitment season, who hosted or attended a presentation at your university or who shared this opportunity with their friends, classmates, students and colleagues. Thank you especially to all of the students who applied to the program and who continue to pursue their interest in learning less commonly taught languages and building mutual understanding between the United States and people of other countries!

The 2017 CLS Program application is closed (as of last night's 8pm EST deadline). We are now getting to the work of application evaluation and we'll be in touch with everyone who submitted an application in January with an update on the status of their candidacy. Until then, we hope that everyone stays engaged in language learning and enjoys a happy holiday season!
