Congratulations to Augsburg University’s new Critical Language Scholar, Shamsa Ahmed! The CLS program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and provides 8-10 weeks of intensive overseas language study and cultural immersion in an effort to expand the number of people in the U.S. who speak languages that are critical to national security and economic prosperity. This summer, Shamsa will be studying Swahili in Tanzania. Only 10% of CLS applicants receive scholarships, and this is the second year in a row that Augsburg will be represented! We are proud of you!
