The Kosciuszko Foundation is accepting applications for summer study programs at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to earn college credit while studying language and courses such as history, literature, and contemporary Poland.
Students of Polish descent have the opportunity to apply for funding to attend the Jagiellonian University’s programs via the Foundation’ s Tomaszkiewicz-Florio Scholarships. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age by the first day of the program and have a high school diploma. Graduating high school students, undergraduate freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to apply. Two letters of recommendation, transcripts with a minimum GPA of 3.0, an essay/personal statement, and financial need are part of the requirements for scholarship funding. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is April 17th. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis.
Classes begin in July. Programs include language classes, afternoon classes on Polish history, workshops, Polish traditions, meals, a shared room, and sightseeing on weekends. Students are responsible for registration fees, single room fees, fees which are not covered by the scholarship, airfare and out-of-pocket expenses.
