A special language program sponsored by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The institutes cover approximately one academic year of university-level language coursework during a seven- to ten-week language program, and are designed to meet the needs of students from a variety of language levels and backgrounds. Some institutes require one to two years of prior language study (or the equivalent), while others accept students with no prior knowledge of the language. In 2013, approximately 600 study abroad scholarships were awarded for thirteen languages, including Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bangla, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Turkish, and Urdu. Program costs – airfare, tuition, room and board, cultural program expenses, overseas health benefits, and applicable visa fees – are fully covered for all participants. Participants receive a small stipend to cover incidental expenses and meals not provided by the program. The program provides undergraduate academic credit through Bryn Mawr College. Upon completion of the program, participants also receive a certified American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages Oral Proficiency Interview score.
