Sophomore Julia Cicchinelli Receives Language Scholarship
Julia Cicchinelli, a sophomore in Chinese 2b class
at Clinton High School, was recently selected to receive a 2017-2018 NSLI-Y
scholarship. The National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) is
sponsored by the Government of the United States of America through the U.S.
Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. This
merit-based scholarship is especially competitive for the summer program
applicants and allows excellent American students to study critical language learning
in the locations where the NSLI-Y languages are spoken. The scholarship will
give Julia the opportunity to attend rigorous Chinese language program and
attend cultural enhancement and community service activities this summer in
China. During her 7-week summer program in China, Julia will live with the
local host families. Congratulations to Julia!
