CESSI Now Accepting Applications

The Central Eurasian Studies Summer Institute (CESSI) at UW-Madison is now accepting applications!


We offer courses in elementary and intermediate Kazakh, Tajik, Uyghur, and Uzbek. Additional levels and languages (such as Kyrgyz) may be added with sufficient student interest. Several funding opportunities exist for undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and working professionals. Graduate students, 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. Graduating seniors may also be eligible for Title VIII fellowships. 


The priority application deadline is February 1, 2018.
