- Study in 7-week programs in Arizona (up to full support)
- Study in 4- and 8-week CLI overseas programs (up to full support)
These fellowships are open to U.S. graduate students only, on a competitive basis. Priority goes to students of Tatar, Armenian, Uzbek, Albanian, or BCS (in that order), then to students at advanced levels of Russian.
Funding varies but can be as high as full support for study in Arizona (fees, room, board) and full support for study-abroad (fees, room, board, travel).
Students may apply for support for both the domestic and overseas components of CLI hybrid courses.
To apply for Title VIII support, fill out the Title VIII section of the CLI Application Form.
