Through the generosity of a private couple in Wisconsin, each year since Summer 2016, the Kosciuszko Foundation has been able to offer two scholarships to Wisconsin students of Polish descent to attend Kosciuszko Foundation's Summer Study Abroad programs in Polish language at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
The scholarship covers program fees for Session A (4 weeks) or Session B (6- weeks). Program fees include: tuition, language textbooks, a shared room, breakfast, dinner and complementary programs such as sightseeing and evening events dedicated to Polish culture and traditions.
The Kosciuszko Foundation pays program fees directly to the Jagiellonian University on behalf of Wisconsin Study in Poland Scholarship (WSIP) winners.
Scholarship recipients will be responsible for $35 scholarship application fee, $95 registration fee, single room fees (if applicable), airfare and transportation costs, medical insurance (required for participation in the program), travel insurance, out of pocket expenses and any other costs.
