TSU SummerAlthough we anticipate that many students will complete at least two, if not all three components of the program, in the interest of flexibility we are not making any component a corequisite or prerequisite of the other. Instead, we will give priority in funding decisions to those students who are able to commit to multiple components of the program.

Funding is available (on competitive basis) for students pursuing language training and/or study abroad under this program. Students applying for components #2 or #3 of the program will be automatically considered for language training stipend awards ($1,000, associated with component #2) and student mobility stipend awards ($3,200 associated with component #3) to support their participation in the U.S.-Russia Global Environmental Issues/Language Learning Course Study Program with 2-Week Study-Abroad (it is a common application to be considered for all funding). While the program is open to all IU students, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for stipend awards. Students who complete both components #2 and #3 may receive a maximum award of $4,200.

 

TSAA Main Building This program is funded by a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education United States-Russia Program: Improving Research and Educational Activities in Higher Education (U.S.-Russia Program), administered under the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) and the Russian Ministry for Education and Science, Russian Federation. The goals of the IU-TSU-TSAA partnership is to support U.S. students in gaining Russian language ability. The strength of the language training program will be integrated within a joint IU-TSU-TSAA research program focusing on the broad topic of Global Environmental Problems and Solutions, a key issue demonstrating the growing interconnectedness in virtually all aspects of human life.
