Russian language program for under-served youth receives grant

The University of Wisconsin–Madison has received $90,000 to support a pre-college program designed to introduce high school students from low-income and minority communities to Russian language and culture.

The 2016 STARTALK award to UW–Madison’s Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) and Department of Slavic Languages and Literature provides support for the Pushkin Summer Institute, which is now entering its fifth year.

The Pushkin Summer Institute (PSI) is an intensive, six-week residential pre-college program that introduces outstanding students from under-represented communities to Russian language and culture through the life and works of poet Alexander Pushkin.
