Study Abroad

The Center for Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies and Office of Study Abroad provide students with many opportunities to develop their language skills and cultural knowledge through extended study abroad programs. The University of Kansas sponsors multiple study abroad programs to fit the needs of your academic program for either the summer or academic year.

CREES strongly encourages its students to pursue study abroad while in the program. An in-country experience goes a long way toward improving language capability, general education, and subsequent job options. Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships (FLAS) are available to University students.

Many REES students have also been successful in applying for NSEP awards for study in Bulgaria, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and other countries; several others have received Kosciuszko Scholarships for study in Poland; other students have competed successfully for Fascell Fellowships which place the candidate into internships at embassies and consulates in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

For questions about study abroad or financial aid contact the KU Office of Study Abroad, 108 Lippincott Hall, 864-5040.
