Deadline: January 25, 2021
ASU’s Critical Language’s Institute will welcome their 8th cohort of Title VIII Fellows in summer 2021! The Department of State’s Title VIII program funds graduate students with U.S. citizenship to study the less commonly taught languages of Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. If you are a current or incoming graduate student who would benefit for language training and Title VIII funding, please use the link below.
Their 7- or 8-week programs provide 8 credits, equivalent to a full two-semester sequence during the academic year, and offer online and in-person components providing cultural and geopolitical context, including a 1-credit online graduate class specifically designed for Title VIII recipients. This course connects students in different language programs, provides comparative perspectives on the post-Soviet world, and builds professional capacities in communicating their expertise to audiences beyond their academic specialty. Languages currently eligible for Title VIII support are Albanian, Armenian, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS), Kazakh, Macedonian, Polish, Russian (3rd year or higher), Ukrainian, and Uzbek.
Depending on the program, fellows may receive up to $10,000 in summer funding. In 2020, fellows received up to $7,500 in funding to participate in our online programs.
