  1. I’ve heard fellowship decisions are sent first, so keep those hopes up everyone! 🙏
  2. Results are in: Headed to Senegal to study French and Wolof! 🙌

  5. Hi everyone! AFLI French/Wolof applicant here. Does anyone know what level in the ILR scale is ultimately required to attend the program? The eligibility page says, “Must be at level 1+ on the ILR scale” http://africanlanguages.americancouncils.org/?q=content/eligibility-3 Not sure if this translates to the intermediate high posted on the Boren site: https://www.borenawards.org/scholarships/thinking-applying/special-initiatives/african-flagship-languages-initiative-options-1 Thanks so much for any clarification!

I applied to their MGPS program because I'm interested in working for national security. A huge reason why I wanted to go back to school was to take advantage of the multiple critical language scholarships available only to students, such as Boren, CLS, FLAS, etc. Based on my personal interests, I've narrowed down my language learning selection to two languages: Russian and Persian. My questions/concerns are: 1. Is it feasible to learn a new language
