Pushkin Students at Picnic Point

Important Program Update (March 31, 2020): Due to the Global Level 4 Health Advisory, the NSLI-Y Madison and Latvia programs have been suspended for summer 2020. We take this decision very seriously and are saddened that no NSLI-Y participants will travel this summer, but we look forward to running our programs again in 2021. If you have questions, please write to psi@creeca.wisc.edu.

The Pushkin Summer Institute (PSI) is an intensive pre-college Russian language and culture program for outstanding high school students. PSI has two distinct, but related programs: PSI Madison and PSI Abroad. PSI Madison, funded through STARTALK, is a five-week residential program on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. PSI Abroad, a program of NSLI-Y, offers students a six-week Russian immersion experience in Daugavpils, Latvia. Both programs of the PSI aim to prepare its graduates to be leaders in a global world.
