Generous financial assistance is made available to Chinese Flagship students to assist them in meeting the costs of the program encountered in the summer prior to freshman year, in one summer of intensive language study in China, and throughout the Capstone Year program in China. The exact amounts are always subject to changes in funding received from The Language Flagship and provided by the National Security Education Program. Students' scholarships may also be graded according to performance.
The Flagship Program does not provide financial aid to support students during the fall and spring semesters. However, many Flagship students receive considerable scholarship support from the University on the basis of their academic qualifications. For more information regarding financial aid at the university, visit the Financial Aid Office online. In addition, many Chinese Language Flagship students enroll in the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College and/or as International Studies majors in the Croft Institute for International Studies. Both the Honors College and the Croft Institute award several highly competitive four-year scholarships.
Flagship students have also won external scholarship support in the form of Boren Scholarships, Institute for International Public Policy Fellowships, and Critical Language Scholarships from the U.S. Department of State. The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College also offers stipends for qualified students to support study abroad.
