Pushkin Students at Picnic Point

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.
