The scholarship covers program fees for Session A, a 4-week program; Session B, a 2-week program or Session AB, a 6-week program. Program fees include: tuition, a Polish language e-textbook, as well as a cultural program.

Scholarship recipients are responsible for payment of the $75 registration fee and will be responsible for a report following the program.
