To Study Polish Language, Culture and History In Krakow & Lublin

The Kosciuszko Foundation is pleased to announce that it will award several special scholarships for gifted Polish-American students to study Polish language and culture this summer in Krakow and Lublin, Poland.
Language courses are available for three week intensive summer programs at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and the John Paul II Catholic University in Lublin.

Now, more college students in America will have this same opportunity."
