Capstone Year & Scholarships

During the Overseas Capstone Year in China or Taiwan, you’ll take 2-3 language classes at the Flagship Center, as well as 1-3 classes in your field at Nanjing University (NJU) or National Yang-Ming University (NYMU) and complete an internship that makes use of your Chinese language skills. Note: NJU and NYMU accepts applicants for both Fall and Spring semester.

There is also a Domestic Capstone Year in Monterey, California. Our staff can tell you more about this exciting new option at the Defense Language Institute.

Capstone Year Scholarships:  Flagship scholarship opportunities are available to Flagship students in good standing who have been accepted to the Overseas or Domestic Capstone Year. We anticipate sending application information to Flagship students in early March.

Flagship scholarships are just one possibility for students. Everyone is strongly encouraged to pursue other scholarship opportunities.
