Yerevan Academy for Linguistics and Philosophy (YALP) 2024

General Information

The Yerevan Academy for Linguistics and Philosophy (YALP) is an annual intensive summer program in linguistics and philosophy.  

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).

Participation in the Yerevan Academy for Linguistics and Philosophy is free of charge. But students will be responsible for the cost of their own housing while participating in YALP.

YALP is generously hosted by the American University of Armenia (AUA).
