The Department of German and Russian Languages and Literatures will offer up to five $1,500 grants to students who successfully complete a first-year or second-year Russian language sequence at an accredited US university this summer. In addition, scholarship recipients must agree to enroll in Intermediate or Advanced Russian I (Fall 2018) and Intermediate or Advanced Russian II (Spring 2019) upon their return to Notre Dame next academic year. Examples of eligible programs follow below, but students may apply the scholarship to any accredited US university with prior approval from the Department.
Although current First-Year students, sophomores, and juniors are eligible, this opportunity is primarily for students who wish to complete a minor or major. For example, a First-Year student who completes a first-year summer course would be on-track to attain a major in Russian over her or his last three years at Notre Dame.
