US Department of State: Scholarship for High School Study Abroad

The NSLI-Y program is designed to immerse participants in the cultural life of the host country, provide formal and informal language practice, and spark a lifetime interest in foreign languages and cultures.

There are no language pre-requisites and beginners are welcome. Gap years students are also welcome as long as they meet age eligibility requirements.

The application deadline for summer 2015 and academic year 2015-2016 programs is October 30, 2014. Find out more.
