Four students will receive full funding to participate in eight-week summer intensive language programs abroad while five others were named alternates.
The CLS recipients are Andi Dahmer of Fisherville; Olivia James of Eagle, Colorado; Logan Johnson of Russellville; and Kathryn Williams of Louisville.
Those designated alternates are Brian Anderson of Buffalo; Austin Barnes of Hodgenville; Ashleigh Cleary of Hebron; Kate Hart of Princeton; and Nathan Read of Belleville, Illinois. All alternates are students in the Chinese Flagship Program at WKU.
The Critical Language Scholarship Program is part of a U.S. government effort to dramatically expand the number of Americans studying and mastering critical foreign languages. Students of diverse disciplines and majors at undergraduate and graduate levels are encouraged to apply. Participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period, and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.
