Each year the Kosciuszko Foundation offers a number of scholarships to American students of Polish descent to take part in Summer Study programs in Polish language with the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
The scholarship covers program fees for Session A, a 4-week program; Session B, a 2-week program or Session A+B, a 6-week program. Program fees include: tuition, a Polish language e-textbook, as well as integration courses and a cultural program. The Kosciuszko Foundation pays program fees directly to the Jagiellonian University on behalf of Tomaszkiewicz-Florio Scholarship winners. Scholarship recipients are responsible for payment of the $75 registration fee.
