Deadline extension: English for Heritage Language Speakers Program

By Genesis Ingersoll, Associate Director

This year’s application deadline for the English for Heritage Language Speakers (EHLS) Program has just been extended to August 13, 2010. EHLS is an adult scholarship and professional development opportunity for nonnative speakers of English interested in careers with the federal government.

The English for Heritage Language Speakers (EHLS) Program EHLS is an intensive, advanced English and professional skills program that prepares nonnative English speakers for careers with the federal government. The program involves 6 months of full-time study at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, followed by 2 months of part-time study which can be completed remotely. Participants improve their English through study of research and presentation skills, meeting participation and facilitation, and professional writing. The program also provides support for participants who are seeking employment with the federal government. Full scholarships, a living stipend (during the full-time portion of the program), and a relocation reimbursement are available for qualified applicants. For 2011, the program is recruiting native speakers of Arabic, Dari, Hausa, Hindi, Igbo, Mandarin Chinese, Pashto, Persian Farsi, Punjabi, Somali, Swahili, or Urdu. Please visit the Center for Applied Linguistics’ website for more information about the program and application process.
