We are excited to announce the availability of scholarships for the summer 2014 Summer Intensive College English program. The scholarship application is now open.

These students will have the opportunity to take advantage of the unique approach to English language instruction only available through this program.

To be eligible, students must meet all eligibility requirements for the program including being between 15 and 19 years old. Students must write a 300 - 500 word essay responding to one of the questions below. Completed essays should be submitted by completing the online scholarship application below.

Option 1: In many countries English is the primary language of instruction at universities. Do you support this policy? Why or why not?

Option 2: Some people believe that having a global language, such as English, is an asset because it allows for greater communication and exchanges between cultures. Others believe that it destroys native and local languages, thus reducing the world’s linguistic richness. State and explain your opinion.
