3:43 p.m., May 6, 2013--University of Delaware undergraduate Jennifer Chao is one of about 610 students nationwide selected by the U.S. Department of State for its Critical Language Scholarship, a program that offers intensive language study.

The program, in which scholars spend seven to 10 weeks during the summer in language institutes, is part of a U.S. government effort to expand the number of Americans studying and mastering foreign languages that are considered critical. The State Department describes the institutes as providing fully funded, group-based intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment experiences.
