*The 2021-22 NSLI for Youth application is now available!*

*Deadline: November 5, 2020 (4 PM ET)*

The National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y)
<http://www.nsliforyouth.org/>, a program of the U.S. Department of State’s
Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), provides merit-based
scholarships for eligible U.S. high school students to learn less commonly
taught languages in summer and academic-year overseas immersion programs.
Programs are available for Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Indonesian,
Korean, Persian (Tajiki), Russian, and Turkish.

The NSLI-Y program was launched in 2006 to promote critical language
learning among American youth. The U.S. Department of State, in cooperation
with American Councils for International Education, awards and administers
merit-based scholarships to high school students for participation in
immersion programs in locations where the eight NSLI-Y languages are
spoken. NSLI-Y immerses participants in the cultural life of the host
community, giving them formal and informal language practice and sparking a
lifetime interest in foreign languages and cultures.

*Previous language study is not required; language learners of all levels
are welcome to apply*. The NSLI-Y program seeks applicants who represent
the diversity of the United States. Students of all racial, ethnic,
religious, gender identities, sexual orientations, disabilities, and
socio-economic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. American Councils makes
every effort to provide reasonable accommodation for participants with
disabilities. For students who require accommodations, a written request
for accommodations must be made, per the American Councils Disability
Accommodations Policy (provided at the time of selection notification).
