Supported by the Melikian Center's endowment and by private donations, the Melikian Center Awards Program provides scholarships of up to $1,750 to CLI-Arizona applicants and up to $4,000 for applicants to CLI programs going abroad. Melikian Center Awards Program is available to study ANY language at CLI.
We also offer a limited number of targeted awards for Albanian, Hebrew, Polish, and Ukrainian:
Through a fund created by CLI Albanian alumna Dr. Elaine H. Berkowitz, CLI is able to provide a limited number of awards of up to $500 for students of Albanian.
Thanks to the generosity of Friends of Jewish Studies, the Arizona State Jewish Studies Program is able to offer awards of up to $500 for students of Hebrew in CLI.
The generosity of past CLI students has made it possible to provide a limited number of awards of $500 for students of Polish.
Thanks to the generosity of private donors from the Ukrainian community, CLI is able to provide a limited number of awards of up to $1,000 for students of Ukrainian.
Please note, you do not have to submit separate applications for the targeted awards for Albanian, Hebrew, Polish, or Ukrainian. If you are applying to study any of these languages, your application for the Melikian Center Awards Program will automatically be considered for these awards.
