The Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships are funded by the United States Department of Education in support of graduate and undergraduate students studying less commonly taught languages and cultures, in particular those considered to be of critical interest to the United States. They are intended to promote the training of students who plan to make their careers in college or university teaching, government service, or other employment where knowledge of foreign languages and cultures is a prerequisite for success.
The School of Global and International Studies is proud to have three centers (African Studies Program; Inner Asian and Uralic Studies Center; Russian and East European Institute) with funding for summer 2017 and academic year 2017-18 FLAS awards in their respective world regions.
U.S. Citizen or Permanent Residency status required for eligibility.
PLEASE NOTE: The availability of FLAS awards in 2017-18 is contingent upon confirmation of funding from the US Department of Education.
