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.
Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships
FLAS Fellowships from the Global Center
The Global Center specifically supports study or research that is transnational, cross-regional, or global. It will only consider proposals that pursue specific national, cultural, or regional subjects in which the research or focus of study utilizes a global framework to explore its object of inquiry. Students interested in government service and/or research on critical global issues or areas of national need are especially encouraged to apply.
