The Center for Global Studies announces competition for FLAS Fellowships
Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships competition for Fall/Spring 2015-16 and Summer 2015 is open for undergraduate and graduate students in all fields of study to apply. Eligible languages are Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian.
FLAS Fellowships are authorized under Title VI of the Higher Education Act and are administered by the U.S. Department of Education. They assist undergraduate and graduate students in achieving competency in selected foreign languages and conducting research in related international and area studies.
FLAS Fellowships are awarded annually. The CGS will award ten fellowships (five undergraduate, five graduate) for the Academic Year 2015-2016 and ten fellowships (five undergraduate, five graduate) for Summer 2015. Fellowships consist of an institutional payment and a subsistence allowance. All FLAS awards are contingent upon the university receiving annual fellowship funding from the U.S. Department of Education.
