Dates: 05-Aug-2018 - 11-Aug-2018
Location: Yerevan, Armenia

Focus: The Yerevan Academy for Linguistics and Philosophy (YALP) is an intensive summer program in linguistics and philosophy that is sponsored by the organizers, who are donating their time and energy. YALP 2018 will bring together 50 undergraduate and graduate students from Armenia and other countries in the region. The summer school is generously hosted by The American University of Armenia.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

The purpose of the academy is to provide an opportunity for students to develop their knowledge and skills, possibly with a view toward applying to doctoral programs in philosophy or linguistics (including programs in the USA and Europe).

There will be no tuition or fees for students participating in The Yerevan Academy for Linguistics and Philosophy. We are currently trying to raise money to help defray housing costs for students, but at the moment students should plan their budgets on the assumption that they will be responsible for the cost of their own housing while participating in YALP.
