Educational Events & Internships
Periodically local colleges, foundations and businesses offer educational events for high school students to explore and learn more about a specific field or interest of study. Please see below for the most current opportunities.
Earn 3 University Credits and Learn Russian For Free This Summer!
Lewis University is excited to offer incoming high school sophomores through incoming juniors an intensive 4-week instruction program in Russian. Students will earn 3 university credits for participation; no tuition costs required.
STARTALK is part of a federal initiative designed to expand foreign language education, specifically in under-taught but critical languages. Note: This four-week program is intensive. Therefore, it cannot be combined with other commitments (e.g. full-time job, athletic activities) since they may interfere with your participation and consequently affect your grade.
Who is eligible?
High School students: rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders
Lewis University students: incoming freshman, rising sophomores and juniors Note: Only those without prior exposure to Russian will be accepted into the program
Where: Lewis University’s Main Campus in Romeoville
Date: Monday through Friday, June 17 - July 12
Time: 9 am - 2:30 pm
Cost: FREE (includes lunch)
