The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures is pleased to announce the Vekich Scholarship, an award for students of South Slavic languages. Up to five Vekich Scholars are named annually from among current UIUC students in the spring, following a simple essay competition. The scholarship will provide language-course materials for Bosnian/Croatian/ Serbian (BCS 101-102, 201-202, or 301-302) the following academic year. In addition Vekich Scholars will be eligible to apply for fellowship support (up to two awards, $500 each) toward subsequent summer language study in the U.S., Bosnia, Croatia, or Serbia.
Watch this space for the announcement of the competition for the 2018-19 School year.
