Study Abroad... again?  
I'm seriously considering it.

Japanese is one of thirteen critical need foreign languages included in the Critical Language Scholarship Program for this upcoming summer.

I meet the lanaguage skill level requirements for the Japanese section of the program.

The scholarship covers all expenses including airfare to the predeparture orientation in Washington DC, so the cost of returning to Japan would not be an issue.

The University for the Japanese program is in Kyoto. I really want to see Kyoto.

The application deadline is November 15th, so I can afford to take a couple days to figure out if I can really do this.

It would be so amazing to see a bit more of Japan. The program will be intense, that's pretty much guaranteed, but I still managed to have a blast the last time I was abroad and I was in a fairly intense program then too.

Should I go for it?

Are there any reasons I shouldn't apply? I can't think of anything right now, but I might be too excited at the moment to think clearly.

yes, yes, most certainly yes.
traveling will never be cheaper than going through a study abroad program. [:

This one would be just about as cheap as possible. Since I already have a passport pretty much all expenses for the program including things like meals and airfare would be provided free of charge.

I just need to figure out the next two or so years of my life and see what plans would work with this trip thrown into the mix.

You should go. Cause having more experience over there will hopefully help when you try to get into the career you want. ^ ^
