English for Heritage Language Speakers (EHLS) is an intensive advanced English and professional skills program that prepares non-native English speakers from a variety of fields for careers with the federal government. This is a scholarship for training in advanced English and career skills.


The program runs January through August; it includes six months of full-time study at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies (Washington, DC) and two months of part-time online study.


After completing the program, graduates must work for the federal government—in a position with national security responsibilities—for at least one year. Please note that participants are responsible for their own federal job searches, as detailed here.


For 2022, full scholarships are available for U.S. citizens who have at least a bachelor's degree and are native speakers of Arabic, Azerbaijani, Balochi, Bambara, Dari, Hausa, Hindi, Kazakh, Korean, Kurdish, Kyrgyz, Mandarin Chinese, Pashto, Persian Farsi, Punjabi, Somali, Russian, Tajik, Tamashek, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, Uzbek, or Vietnamese.
