Fall 2021 Overseas Programs 

American Councils has been monitoring the global COVID-19 pandemic and government policies in the U.S. and overseas to carefully assess our ability to proceed safely with in-person programming. In light of growing progress in vaccine distribution in the U.S. and abroad and the gradual lifting of visa restrictions for foreigners traveling overseas, we are hopeful for a return to overseas programming in the fall semester. 

We are extending the application deadline for our fall 2021 study abroad programs through Tuesday, June 1st to best accommodate prospective applicants whose schedules or circumstances allow them to explore additional options for overseas language study. This includes the following semester language immersion programs: 

·       Advanced Russian Language and Area Studies Program 

·       Balkan Language Initiative 

·       Business Russian Language and Internship Program 

·       Eurasian Regional Language Program 

·       Russian Heritage Speakers Program
