CLI funding applications will open on October 1st, 2020. The deadline for all CLI funding applications is January 25th, 2021.
Welcome to the CLI Funding Overview page. Here you will find information on need- and merit-based funding offered by the Critical Languages Institute, as well as two of the external scholarship programs that can be used to fund your CLI program.
For information on our Need-Based Fee Reduction, which does not require an additional application, please see the associated tab below.
In order to apply to one of our scholarships, you will have to first apply to a CLI program. Once you have started your CLI application, you will see a section titled "Scholarship Information" on your application dashboard under "Resources." From the scholarship information screen, you will be able to choose which scholarship application to begin.
You CAN apply for more than one type of scholarship, but please read through the eligibility requirements carefully. Please note that applying for a CLI program does not grant you automatic consideration for a scholarship. Please contact us if you have any questions about funding!
