Throughout its history, the Monterey Institute of International Studies has sought to attract the highest caliber of well-qualified, internationally-oriented students. As the Institute’s programs in areas such as international business and international environmental policy have expanded in recent years, a significant number of students who are highly qualified in every other respect to attend MIIS have been rejected because they are unable to meet the language proficiency requirement.
The Monterey Institute of International Studies and Language Services Associates (LSA), a global language service provider offering a full suite of multicultural solutions, are proud to announce the establishment of The Language Services Associates Scholarship Fund at MIIS. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance to ambitious and worthy students who are otherwise unable to afford to attend the Monterey Institute.
Five nuclear scientists and three English language faculty members from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) in Tomsk, Russia, have taken on the roles of students at the Monterey Institute of International Studies this summer, taking part in a unique, customized program curriculum intended to enhance communication between nonproliferation officials in the U.S. and Russia.
The Monterey Institute offers a wide variety of special programs ranging from intensive language courses and specialized custom language programs to intense training for professionals in the fields of international trade and development. No matter what time of year you visit the Monterey campus, happy voices can be heard in dozens of languages. The summer is no exception.
When I lived in Spain, I was the coordinator for Student Affairs and Integration for Middlebury College, opening Madrid’s door for American and international students. In today’s world, where there is global communication, and many people travel beyond their countries’ boundaries, English is a must for everyone – whether we like it or not. In my case, it was even more important that I spoke good English because I was working for a US college.
