From the Executive Director of Eastern European Study Abroad:
The health and safety of our students, staff and the people around us has always been our top priority. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, EESA has moved all the classes to online learning. All of our staff are working from home, and we encourage everyone to do their part and practice social distancing.
During these uncertain times, it may be hard to plan for future travels and learning experiences abroad. We understand the students’ concerns, as we are in this fight against the pandemic together. From our side, EESA has waived all the cancellation or change of program fees. We postponed the deadline to May 1 for any current outstanding payments for summer/fall programs. Our staff is monitoring the situation closely and any decisions we make regarding the programs are out of putting students’ safety first. As of now, the summer programs are scheduled to run as planned. However, if the coronavirus situation does not improve, if there are travel restrictions in place, if the programs are cancelled or if students do not feel safe to travel abroad, we pledge to offer an alternative program for different dates, an online program, or a full refund of all fees except for the application fee.
Here are the programs we encourage you to apply for now:
Online Russian language or online Ukrainian language. Take this opportunity now to devote some time to learning a new language or improving your skills.
