We want to congratulate Zamara Choudhary for being been selected for the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program.
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program is an intensive and highly selective overseas language and cultural immersion program organized and fully funded by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. CLS is part of a wider government initiative to expand the number of Americans studying and mastering foreign languages that are critical to national security and economic prosperity to create a 21st century globalized workforce and increase national competitiveness.
As a recipient of the CLS award, Zamara will spend eight weeks studying Arabic in Tangier, Morocco at the Arab American Language Institute in Morocco (AALIM) on the campus of the American School of Tangier. Zamara will use her increased proficiency in Arabic and exposure to Moroccan cultures to facilitate cross-cultural understanding and exchange through arts and culture.
ARAD wishes you all the best as you pursue this exciting endeavor!
