The program, organized in cooperation with the Kosciuszko Foundation and offered at the prestigious Jagiellonian University, includes intensive Polish language instruction in the morning (available from beginner through advanced levels) and at least one of the afternoon lectures. A second lecture may be added at no extra cost.

Students live in double occupancy rooms at Dom Studenta "Piast", 5 tram stops from the Old Town, where the University is located. Meals are served three times a day in the dormitory cafeteria.

Because of the World Youth Day  taking place in Krakow, this year the students will stay in Krakow for the first 3 weeks while for the final week they will be moved to Szczawnica, a lovely mountain resort, known for its mineral waters.

The classes will be complemented by guided tours of the Krakow's Old Town and the Wawel Royal Castle, as well as by excursions to such places as Pieniny Mountains for a raft ride on the Dunajec River, ski-resort town of Zakopane, Auschwitz Memorial, Wieliczka Salt Mines or Pieskowa Skala Castle.


Full-time students of Polish descent, who are US citizens or permanent residents and who have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, may apply for the Tomaszkiewicz-Florio scholarship. These students have to provide the following: official transcript, financial form, 2 letters of reference from professors, and a well reasoned essay (minimum 2 pages) on why they are applying to the program, the reason for their choice of lecture classes and what it is that fascinates them about Poland (the same essay can serve as the personal statement required for the program application.) There is also a $35.00 Scholarship application fee. Checks need to be made to "Kosciuszko Foundation".

*The scholarship, if received, will be in the amount of $1,925. The decisions will be made late May-early June.
