Who is eligible for the Russian Flagship program?
The IU Russian Language Flagship welcomes undergraduate students pursuing any major with or without Russian language experience.
Students with zero previous experience with Russian, current Russian language students, and Russian heritage speakers are all welcome to participate in the program. There are only two eligibility requirements:
- Students must have at least a 3.00 cumulative GPA (high school or current IU GPA)
- Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to be eligible for Flagship scholarships. Students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to participate in the program, but they are not eligible to receive Flagship funding.
Applicants must be committed to achieving superior-level Russian by completing the necessary coursework, fulfilling program requirements, staying in good academic standing, participating in a pre-Capstone study abroad program, and completing the Capstone Year abroad.
If you are considering applying to the Russian Language Flagship, make an appointment with the Russian Flagship assistant director to discuss your options. You can also email us with any questions about the program.
