e-Connections Post

C.K. McClatchy High School sophomore Sarah Whipple, a student in the Humanities and International Studies Program, has been awarded a National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) scholarship.

NSLI-Y offers intensive language immersion programs in a variety of locations around the world. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the organization provides merit-based scholarships for eligible high school students to learn less commonly taught languages and is part of a U.S. government initiative that prepares American citizens to be leaders in a global world.

Whipple will join other students from around the country to study Arabic in Muscat, Oman, for seven weeks this summer while living with an Omani family.
