In 2004, federal law pertaining to the NSEP was amended to provide scholarships for native speakers of languages critical to national security. Scholarship recipients attend special programs at universities to raise their English proficiency from advanced level to professional level (ILR 3).

The Center for Applied Linguistics manages the program which is hosted by Georgetown and the University of Washington at Seattle. The information on this website applies only to the Georgetown University program. More information about the EHLS Program can be found on the CAL website.

The GU-EHLS Scholarship Program was launched in March 2006 with nine students. Their native languages were Arabic, Chinese, Korean, and Russian, and their professional backgrounds included accounting, broadcasting, international relations, translation and interpretation, agricultural planning, engineering, and physics. All had advanced degrees, many with more than one professional diploma. The inaugural class graduated on August 25, 2006.
