OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Want to spend a summer or a school year studying a critical language and living in another country for free?! The NSLI-Y program, funded by the U.S. State Department, provides full scholarships for American high school students who want to study Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Bahasa Indonesian, Korean, Persian (Tajiki), Russian, or Turkish in countries where those languages are spoken. Applications for Summer 2020 and the 2020-21 school year are due by Oct. 30, and the selection process is competitive. For those students who might not have the time or inclination to go abroad, later this year one can also apply for the new NSLI-Y digital classroom to learn Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Korean, or Russian for free. Applications for the 2020-21 digital classroom will be due in June 2020 for the following school year. www.nsliforyouth.org/
