The goal of awarding a scholarship funded by Polish Language School GLOSSA is to popularize the broad scope of Polish culture and language. In addition, it will give students an opportunity to participate in the Summer School of Polish Language and Culture, and thereby allow them to improve their language skills and become more familiar with Polish culture and history.
The contest is an annual event announced in the fall of each academic year. It debuted in 2006 and for the first three years it was organized exclusively for students and graduates of higher education institutions. Due to its high popularity and participation among those interested in Polish culture and language, Polish Language School GLOSSA has decided to open the contest to all interested in Poland (ages 16 and older).
The authors of the two best essays will be rewarded with the following scholarship:
1. two-week intensive Polish language course (40 lessons total) which will take place during the Summer School of Polish Language and Culture
2. accommodation with a Polish host family or in a shared flat
The two-week intensive Polish language course must be completed in July or August of 2012, and cannot be postponed to another time. Scholarships cannot be exchanged for their equivalent monetary value.
The jury will also select 5 essays of honorable mention whose authors will receive a book as reward for their entry.
