Offer: Summer Intensive Languages/Fellowships
From June 16 to August 6, 2008, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will host the national Summer Cooperative African Language Institute (SCALI). The intensive, seven-week institute provides the equivalent of one year of African language instruction with cultural exposure. Ten-to-14 languages are taught each summer.
SCALI is offered collaboratively by the nation's Title VI National Resource Centers for African Language and Area Studies with funding from the U.S. Department of Education.
Title VI FLAS Fellowships are available for graduate students to attend SCALI for all languages including Elementary Swahili. FLAS awards cover the cost of normal core college tuition and fees and a stipend of $2,500 for the duration of the institute. FLAS fellowships and the SCALI program are funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
