Undergraduate Language Grant (ULG)

Undergraduate Language Grant (ULG)


Undergraduate Language Grants (ULG) support the intensive and experiential learning of foreign languages during the summer.  The Office of Undergraduate Research will award grants to help defray the costs of intensive language study abroad or in the United States.  Grants are for $5,000.  Study programs must be at least six weeks in duration, and language instruction must be the predominant (if not the sole) aim of the program.  In particular, the grant committee seeks to fund students who will be using this language training to help them achieve specific academic and professional goals.
