Activities in celebration of International Education Week (IEW) will take place the week of October 4-8, 2010. These activities are sponsored by IUP's Office of International Education in collaboration with the Lively Arts Series.
All events are free unless otherwise noted and open to the public. Vouchers will be available for classes encouraged to attend events.
International Education Week is a joint national initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.
We are pleased to announce the National Security Education Program African Languages Initiative. This initiative will offer Boren Fellowship applicants the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of, and proficiency in, African languages and cultures. We seek applicants who have had exposure to Bambara, Swahili, Yoruba, or Zulu, and can demonstrate proficiency of novice-high or above.
Specifically, this pilot initiative will provide the opportunity for Fellows to enhance their Boren Fellowship with additional language study in the United States and overseas. Beginning summer 2011, Fellows will have the opportunity to enroll in domestic university-based summer intensive courses in the targeted languages. The summer U.S. programs will be followed by intensive language and culture study programs during the fall semester at specific language centers in Mali (Bambara), Tanzania (Swahili), Nigeria (Yoruba), and South Africa (Zulu).
