Scholarships Available To Study Polish
At Pitt’s Summer Language Institute

The University of Pittsburgh’s Summer Language Institute (SLI) at the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures is proud to announce that it is offering three levels of Polish this summer – Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced. SLI has generous scholarships available for applicants to Polish courses. All applicants are eligible for scholarships regardless of level or institutional affiliation.

SLI offers programs in Pittsburgh, Krakow, and a hybrid program that begins in Pittsburgh and continues in Krakow. Pittsburgh is a city that takes enormous pride in its Polish heritage and is an excellent locale for intensive Polish language study.

The deadline for priority scholarship consideration is March 1st, 2019, though SLI can accept applications after this date.

SLI accepts undergraduates, graduates, and highly-motivated non-affiliated learners. In some cases, SLI can accept high school students who demonstrate the requisite maturity and dedication to succeed in an intensive program.

SLI students come from all over the county for the learning opportunities, which include not only language training in all four modes (speaking, reading, listening, and writing), but also a rich program of extra-curricular activities including film screenings, lectures, ethnic picnics, and other community and cultural activities.

Out-of-state students may study at SLI for fees equivalent to the in-state tuition rate. The combination of in-state rates and scholarships make SLI courses one of the most affordable options available for intensive language training.

SLI celebrates a 30-year tradition of passionate teaching and proven results. Whether students choose to study on Pitt’s campus or to study abroad, they can expect to cover approximately one academic year’s worth of course work during a single summer.
