There are several opportunities for financial aid to attend CoLang 2014. Scholarship recipients must register for CoLang by April 15, 2014.
Internal CoLang Scholarships
There will be a limited number of scholarships available through fundraising efforts. These scholarships will not support travel costs to CoLang 2014, but instead will pay for part or all of the registration, housing and meal plan costs. If awarded a scholarship, you will be responsible for any costs not provided for by the scholarship. Applications are due by March 17, with one letter of recommendation required from someone familiar with your language work.
In order to apply, click here to submit an application. We recommend that where we are asking for more detail, you type this up offline before completing the application and then copy and paste your answers into the form. This will save your statements for the longer questions in your records in case of any problems with the application before submitting it. After submitting your application, have someone who is familiar with your language work submit a letter of recommendation to email@example.com. Please ask them to put "Scholarship Recommendation Letter" and your name in the subject line.
Complete applications are due by March 17, including recommendation letter. Registration for CoLang 2014 must be completed by no later than April 15, 2014.
