Summer Immersion Opportunity: Win a Scholarship to Concordia Language Villages


Update: Thanks to all who participated! This scholarship contest deadline was April 25, 2018.  The contest is now closed, and winners will be notified by May 10, 2018. 


In follow up to the success of last year’s competition, campaign partner Concordia Language Villages is once again awarding twenty-five $1,000 Lead with Languages Scholarships to be put toward attending a two-week or four-week summer youth immersion program at Concordia Language Villages in Minnesota this summer.

The summer is a great time to explore a new language or to keep skills fresh between academic years—and of course to play games, have unforgettable adventures, and meet new friends!

Programs are available in 15 languages, including:

Arabic, Chinese, Danish, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish & Swedish.

To enter the competition, participants ages 7-18 must submit a video of up to 30 seconds that answers the question: “Why is learning [insert the specific language you are interested in] important to me?”

Selection of the most compelling videos will be paired with demonstration of financial need.  Applicants must be registered and pay a deposit for a 2018 two-week or four-week summer youth session. All applications will be considered. 2017 Lead with Languages Scholarship recipients are not eligible for the 2018 competition. 

The deadline to submit your application is April 25, 2018.
