What is NSLI-Y on CollegeVine?

What tier/category would the National Security Language Initiative for Youth be on CollegeVine? Here is a description from the program's website:

"The U.S. Department of State’s National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) program was launched in 2006 to promote critical language learning among American youth. The U.S. Department of State, in cooperation with American Councils for International Education, awards and administers merit-based scholarships to high school students for participation in summer and academic year immersion programs in locations where the eight NSLI-Y languages are spoken. NSLI-Y immerses participants in the cultural life of the host community, giving them formal and informal language practice and sparking a lifetime interest in foreign languages and cultures. Participants receive intensive language instruction, live with a host family for all or part of the program, and participate in a variety of cultural activities."

TLDR: A study abroad/intensive language study program fully funded by the US Department of State. What tier/category is it on CollegeVine?

Thank you so much!

I would say it is probably best to categorize it as "summer program" and then I would say you definitely qualify for "tier F" but you might be able to put "tier E." I would start with tier F though to be on the safe side
