BERKELEY URDU LANGUAGE PROGRAM IN PAKISTAN
The 26th Berkeley Urdu Language Program in Pakistan (BULPIP) will provide
30 weeks of Urdu instruction in two 15-week terms, with winter and spring
breaks, from September 1998 through May 1999. Particularly well-qualified
persons unable to spend the entire academic year may apply for one term.
Independent scholars and faculty members who wish to improve their
knowledge of Urdu in conjunction with ongoing or planned research are
encouraged to apply. This is strictly a language program.
1. Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
2. Applicants must have completed at least two years of Urdu and/or Hindi,
or the equivalent, and possess a good knowledge of the Urdu script.
Applicants who have been instructed in one year of Urdu and/or Hindi are
eligible if they intend to take an intensive second-year Urdu/Hindi course
during the summer prior to their intended program stay.
All participants must pay a $25 application fee and a program fee of $2000
for the full academic year or $1300 for one term.
Advanced language students can pay their tuition, housing, round-trip
transportation to Pakistan, a maintenance allowance, and health insurance
in one of the following three ways:
1. USIA/NMERTA funding: Upon acceptance to the program, US citizens who are
registered students in a graduate program will be considered for a full
fellowship sponsored by the United States Information Agency. This
fellowship covers all costs of the program, except the application and
program fees. No provision is made for dependents.
2. Other fellowships: Alternate sources of funding include fellowships
sponsored by Foreign Area Language Studies, Fulbright, and the Social
Science Research Council.
3. Private funding: Students may participate in the program using their own
funds. Ask us about total costs.
The application deadline is March 1, 1998. Request applications and
