SYLAP 2017

SYLAP 2016The Shoshone/Goshute Youth Language Apprenticeship Program (SYLAP) is a 6–week summer program for tribal youth hosted by the University of Utah’s Shoshoni Language Project.  It offers students the opportunity to: 

  • Begin learning their heritage language in a for–credit university course,
  • Work as a paid intern on language documentation and revitalization projects,
  • Live on a university campus and learn about going to college.

If you are a high school sophomore, junior or senior at the time of application and are connected in some way to a Shoshone tribe, we encourage you to apply!

Please be aware that the application requires recommendations and transcripts.

Note:  Former SYLAPers who wish to return next summer should email for more information and an application: ShoshoniLanguageProject@utah.edu.
