The Syracuse Center for European Studies (CES), in consortium with Cornell University’s Institute for European Studies, was awarded a $1.5 million federal Foreign Language and Areas Studies (FLAS) fellowship grant for academic years 2006-2010. CES, directed by Associate Professor of Political Science Mitchell A. Orenstein, is a U.S. Department of Education-designated National Resource Center housed in the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School.
The FLAS program provides tuition and a generous stipend for SU graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents to undertake intensive language training and area studies that complement their program of study. Students may study any of the following languages offered at SU: French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish or Turkish. FLAS awards are open to SU graduate students in any program with interests in contemporary European or Russian Studies. Summer fellowships at the intermediate level or above are tenable abroad at approved language programs.
This grant will fund the continuation of both CES summer and academic-year FLAS awards at SU. Four summer fellowships will be offered annually, as well as six academic-year fellowships. Applications for summer awards are typically due in February; applications for academic-year awards in March.
