AIIS will be offering its summer language program online for summer 2020 and is extending the deadline for applying for the program until May 10, 2020. We will be offering an eight week program (June 17 to August 13) in Bangla, Gujarati Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Mughal Persian, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Tibetan, and Urdu. Students will have three options: a 140-hour program ($1,820), a 120-hour program ($1,560), and a 72-hour program ($936). AIIS will not be able to provide financial aid to students who apply during this extra extended application period, so those who apply during this time (now through May 10) will need to procure their own funding.* Decisions about admissions will be made by May 22.
To apply, students should go to www.indiastudies.org They should register on the portal but should ONLY upload one pdf containing two items: the two-page main application form and the one-page statement of purpose, They should NOT upload any other materials nor should they arrange for letters of recommendation. They would add the $25 application fee to the program fee they would pay.
