Central Eurasian Studies Summer Institute (University of Wisconsin)

Deadline: February 1, 2024

Greetings from UW-Madison’s Central Eurasian Studies Summer Institute (CESSI)! We are excited to announce that applications for CESSI 2024 are now open! CESSI typically offers courses in Kazakh, Tajik, Uyghur, and Uzbek. Additional Central Eurasian languages (such as Azerbaijani or Kyrgyz) may be added with sufficient student interest.

Several funding opportunities exist for students of any type. Graduate students (including incoming students), post-baccalaureate researchers, and professionals who are U.S. citizens are especially encouraged to apply for the Title VIII Fellowship*, which covers full tuition plus a stipend of $2,500 for the summer. Note: This is a great opportunity for incoming MA and PhD students to develop language skills before embarking on fieldwork. *TVIII funding is provided by the United States government. Funding is conditional on final approval from U.S. State Department.

About CESSI:

CESSI is an intensive, eight-week language program that will be held June 17-August 9, 2024, in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin. Students receive the equivalent of one year of language study during this time and earn eight credits upon completion of the program. In addition to language classes, CESSI students have the opportunity to attend lectures on Central Eurasia; participate in cultural events; engage with local Central Eurasian communities; and network with other scholars of Central Eurasia. Students of all disciplines and academic programs are welcome!

The priority application deadline is February 1, 2024. We will be regularly posting information and deadline reminders to Facebook (@CessiMadison), Instagram (@uwcessi), and Twitter/X (@UWCESSI), which we invite you to share.
