                            HON. PETE OLSON

                        Friday, January 3, 2020

  Mr. OLSON. Madam Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Nirdesh Oswal 
of Sugar Land for earning a State Department Critical Language 
Scholarship.
  Nirdesh is a student at the University of Texas at Austin and one of 
only 550 students to receive a scholarship. Over the summer, he 
traveled to Nizhny, Novgorod in Russia where he was immersed in the 
Russian language and culture.
  The Critical Language Scholarship is a merit-based award that gives 
American students the opportunity to study one of the fifteen critical 
languages to our nation's world engagement abroad. It aims to help 
students increase their fluency in the language they are studying and 
learn more about the culture surrounding it.
  On behalf of the Twenty-Second Congressional District of Texas, I 
congratulate Nirdesh. He earned this incredible achievement through his 
hard-work and dedication to his studies. Nirdesh has made Sugar Land 
and TX-22 very proud.
