The Year Abroad Scholarship supports Polish language studies at the Jagiellonian University's Center of Polish Language and Culture in Cracow, Poland. Scholarships are awarded under the auspices of the Foundation's Exchange Program with Poland and Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange. Students who are awarded a scholarship are accepted to attend the Center for Polish Language and Culture program at the Jagiellonian University.
The scholarship includes a tuition waiver and 1,600 zloty per month for living expenses from Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange as well as $900 per semester in additional support from the Kosciuszko Foundation.
Airfare is not covered by the scholarship. Please note that the Scholarship Selection Committee may elect to award semester-only grants.
