English for Heritage Language Speakers Program (EHLS)

English for Heritage Language Speakers provides training in advanced English and career skills for non-native speakers of English who are interested in public service. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, have the equivalent of a B.A./B.S. degree, be native speakers of eligible languages, and have advanced-level English skills.

The program runs eight months (January through August), with six months of full-time study at Georgetown University (in Washington, D.C.) and two months of part-time online study. The curriculum includes public speaking and professional writing--among other topics. All tuition is covered, and scholars receive a monthly living stipend.

After completing the program, graduates must work for the federal government for at least one year.

EHLS is funded by the National Security Education Program and administered by the Center for Applied Linguistics and Georgetown University.
