Three Madeira students accepted into the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y)

May 20, 2013

Bridget Duru ’15, Briaun Isreal ’13, and Sarah Wood ’14 have been selected to participate in the prestigious NSLI-Y program. The program, which provides merit-based scholarships overseas immersion experiences for less commonly taught languages, is highly competitive and demands a rigorous application process.

Bridget Duru was accepted to the 2013 summer excursion program in China where she will spend six to eight weeks in Shanghai or Sichuan with a host family, taking classes and engaging in the culture through various activities.

Briaun Isreal will have a similar experience in Morocco this summer where she will be studying Arabic. Sarah Wood has been selected to spend the 2013-2014 academic year in Morocco. Over a seven to eight month time period, this unique opportunity significantly increases the ability to communicate in Arabic through instruction in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Modern Standard Arabic. She will also have the opportunity to put her learn skills to use through community service, art classes, and presentation.
