Come learn about Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships from UNC Area Studies staff. For more information about FLAS, visit http://areastudies.unc.edu/flas/.
FLAS fellowships fund the study of less commonly taught languages and area studies coursework. This program provides academic year and summer fellowships to assist graduate students and advanced undergraduates in foreign language and area studies. The goals of the fellowship program include: (1) to assist in the development of knowledge, resources and trained personnel for modern foreign language and area/international studies; (2) to stimulate the attainment of foreign language acquisition and fluency; and (3) to develop a pool of international experts to meet national needs. There are two types of FLAS grants offered by the Center:
- Summer intensive language study. Grants provide $2,500 in stipend and full tuition (up to $5,000) for approved intensive summer language courses in the U.S. or abroad.
- An academic year course of study that includes both language and area studies courses. Academic year grants for GRADUATE students provide about $15,000 in stipend plus full tuition and fees. Academic year grants for UNDERGRADUATE students provide $5000 in stipend plus up to $10,000 in tuition and fees.
