Application for the SEALC Language Tuition Support with support from the Henry Luce Foundation. The Southeast East Asian Language Council (SEALC) awards financial assistance to students who incur tuition fees when studying a Southeast Asian language during the academic year at an institution other than their home institution via synchronous distance learning. Priority will be given to graduate students, but all are encouraged to apply.

This award is intended to facilitate cross-institutional collaboration and increase access to Southeast Asian language instruction. SEASSI serves as an excellent resource for summer language instruction; and this award is intended to improve access during the academic year so that students can obtain multi-year instruction in a timely manner.

What does the assistance cover? The award reimburses the student up to one-half of the tuition charges (up to $1000 per semester/quarter) incurred in order to study a SE Asian language via synchronous distance learning at another institution.

Application process: Submit the application here 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the semester/quarter when you plan to study the SE Asian language. The application includes a series of questions about your language proficiency and need for language study. It also requires a letter of recommendation.
