Funding by the Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language (UISFL) program has been awarded to the Office of International Studies at MSU Billings and four consortial partners to support language acquisition and global learning. Part of this funding is to support students' study abroad programs to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and China. All full-time undergraduate students within the Yellowstone Consortium are encouraged to participate in the UISFL Language & Study Abroad Scholarship Program. 

Students will begin language studies through their respective institution within the Yellowstone Consortia for the first year. For the second year of language study, students are encouraged to apply to study abroad at one of our partner universities in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, or China. Preference will be given to students who are able to spend two consecutive semesters abroad. All credits earned while studying abroad will transfer back to 顶级国产视频 (and to the student's respective Consortium institution, if applicable).
