CCU student receives prestigious State Department scholarship to study Russian language
Hannah Hamelman has been awarded a U.S. Department of State Critical Language Scholarship to study the Russian language this summer at Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) program is an intensive overseas language and cultural immersion program for American students. It's part of a government initiative to expand the number of Americans studying and mastering foreign languages that are critical to national security and economic prosperity. CLS plays an important role in preparing students for the 21st century's globalized workforce and increasing national competitiveness.
