Critical Language Scholarship

Looking for a more intensive language experience, she applied for the Critical Language Scholarship Program that summer. The U.S. Department of State’s immersion program is designed for rapid language gains, just what Abena was looking for. But her application was not selected.
Undeterred, she applied again the following year.
This time, she was accepted.
