Carrollton is proud to share the exciting news that one of our sophomore students studying Chinese, Gabriela Garity ‘20, has won a Department of State Scholarship to go to China this summer. Gabriela started to learn Mandarin when she first arrived at Carrollton as a Montessori student. She has shown a true enthusiasm for learning Mandarin during all these years. Her passion to learn about a different culture shows in her proficiency.

This program is called the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y), which promotes critical language learning among American youth. It is a program of the Government of the United States of America through the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Gabriela was selected to go to Nanjing, China for seven weeks, from June 27 - August 12, 2018. This trip is fully covered by her scholarship from the Department of State.

For more information on this program, please go to their website: www.nsliforyouth.org. www.americancouncils.org.
The NSLI-Y scholarship selection process is highly competitive and we are extremely proud of Gabriela’s accomplishments.
