Summer Program—SEALS Japan



Scholarships for First and Second Year Japanese (i.e., JPNSE 1061 or JPNSE 1062).

  1. In-state tuition: All out-of-state students who register for either JPNSE 1061 or JPNSE 1062 will receive a scholarship that will reduce the tuition fee to the in-state tuition rate for the 10-week, 10-credit course. In 2015, for example, the the in-state tuition rate is $703/credit = $703 x 10 credits = $7,030.
  2. SEALS applicants intending to take JPNSE 1061 or JPNSE 1062 are eligible to apply for additional financial support. In 2014, for example, we were able to award five tuition-waiver scholarships.
