The School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs is proud to announce that two of our students were awarded Critical Language Scholarships. Elizabeth Burdette will be studying advanced Hindi in India and Madeline Edwards will be studying Arabic.
The two-year Hindi Program at the College of Charleston is in its 3rd year and is directed by Leena Karambelkar. Ghazi Abuhakema has been directing the Arabic Program since 2008. The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program offers fully-funded summer language institutes for U.S. university students and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
