The deadline for the first round of applications is February 1, 2017. The first round of applications will be reviewed by a selection committee at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The reviewers will look for applicants who are excellent students, who plan to continue their study of Russian, and who are open-minded, flexible, and able to navigate challenges successfully. Students selected to advance to semifinalist status will be notified of their status by February 8, 2017 and will need to complete a second round application by March 8, 2017. This second application will be reviewed by the UW-Madison selection committee and reviewers from NSLI-Y. Final decisions should be made by late March 2017.
