Intensive Yoruba in Nigeria: Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad

June 11 – August 6, 2014

An Intensive Advanced Yoruba Group Projects Abroad (hereafter Yoruba GPA) for Summer 2014 is planned for Nigeria. The course will be held at the University of Ibadan, and directed by Dr Akíntúndé Akínyemí of the Department of Languages, Literatures, & Cultures at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

The Fulbright-Hays GPA fellowship covers:

* Roundtrip airfare from Atlanta to Lagos
* Program-related transportation in Nigeria
* Maintenance allowance for housing and food, cost of instruction and educational materials

The fellowship does not cover:

*$1000 program fee
*Transportation from participant’s home to Atlanta and return
*Passport and visa processing fees, inoculations and other health care travel

Students will be expected to travel to Nigeria and return as a group. In the likely event that the program will only be able to provide participants with special group-rate (non-changeable, non-refundable) tickets, travel will only be possible on the selected dates. Any changes in reservation and travel dates and costs connected with them will be the responsibility of the student. Final travel dates will be announced at a later date.
