Jennings & Rebecca Jones Foundation Scholarships (2015)

Jennings-Jones Logo CALA is proud to partner with the Jennings & Rebecca Jones Foundation to provide scholarships for Rutherford County high school teachers and students interested in attending its Language Institute.  Thanks to the generosity of the Foundation, a select number of high school students and teachers will have the opportunity to take up to two parts (two weeks) of a language of their choice.  The priority deadline for all applications is Friday, May 22, 2015.  Consideration will be given to applications submitted after this date as funds are available.  Scholarship recipients will receive an email on the status of their award on an ongoing basis after May 22.
The CALA Language Institute features accelerated language classes in Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Latin, and Spanish.  Classes are engineered to provide rapid gains in the language by appealing to how the brain learns best, which is how you learned your native language--with lots of hands-on methods that are fun and enjoyable.  To learn more about CALA's brain-based approach to language teaching, please feel free to peruse this site and/or watch this Introduction to the Language Institute.

     1.  Complete the Application online (includes essay).

     2.  Read carefully and obtain signatures on the Participant Agreement

     3.  Request that one of your teachers complete the Student Recommendation Form on your                   behalf (for high school students only).
