The AIIS Language Program offers nine-month academic year, summer and semester courses at elementary to advanced levels in many Indian languages which may include: Bangla (Bengali), Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Mughal Persian, Pali/Prakrit, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu, Kashmiri, Oriya, Sindhi, and Tibetan. The eligibility requirements vary depending on the particular program. The full academic year program is intended for students who have successfully completed two years of language training and who seek intensive immersion instruction within a target-language environment to work toward an advanced-to-superior level of proficiency. Summer programs are offered at a variety of levels. AIIS awards full fellowships to qualified academic-year and semester program students on a competitive basis; summer program applicants should seek alternate funding first, but may also be considered for financial assistance from AIIS.
