Student Certification System Requirement

Students applying for Language Flagship Scholarships are required to complete (or update) a profile in the Student Certification System (SCS), a database managed by the National Security Education Program (NSEP) in the U.S. Department of Defense, which funds the Russian Flagship Program at UW-Madison. NSEP uses the SCS to track student enrollments and determine the amount of funding, including funding for Language Flagship Scholarships, to provide for the Russian Flagship Program. It is extremely important that Russian Flagship students keep their profiles in the Student Certification System up-to-date! Russian Flagship students who have not completed a profile in the Student Certification System are not eligible to apply for Language Flagship Scholarships.
