The Turkish Flagship Language Initiative (TURFLI) is a special initiative of the Boren Awards for International Study offering awardees the opportunity for intensive language study of Turkish and for cultural immersion by participating in domestic and overseas language programs.

TURFLI students participate in a full-time domestic summer program offered at UW-Madison through APTLI. Students will then travel abroad to Baku for a full-time fall semester of language and culture study. Requests for additional study through the spring semester can be made to Boren during the application process. All participants must complete the 2021 summer domestic and 2021 fall abroad programs.

In addition to full-time language courses, students will have tutors, language conversation tables (summer), homestays (fall), and cultural excursions to help ensure that language goals are being met.
