IU Student Named Inaugural CIEE Language Scholar
January 7, 2013
The program offers a scholarship of at least $5,000 to help fund a single-language study abroad through a CIEE study abroad program. Lindley is currently studying in St. Petersburg, Russia, on a co-sponsored IU study abroad program. She hopes the program will provide an immersive experience to enhance her proficiency in Russian language.
CIEE is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that has helped thousands of students, professionals, and educators gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering valuable exchange programs. The Office of Overseas Study co-sponsors a number of CIEE study abroad programs.
CIEE’s goal for the LIFT scholarship program is to enable serious, academically focused students to pursue deep language acquisition—traditionally a cornerstone of international education—which plays a critical role in students’ abilities to bridge cultures and to become successful professionals in their chosen fields of study.
