Call for FLAS Summer 2011 Applications
The Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship (FLAS) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI, assists students in pursuing training in order to acquire a high level of competence in one or more languages critical to national needs of the United States, and a fuller understanding of the areas, regions, or countries in which that language is commonly used. The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School houses the National Resource Center through which these
fellowships are administered: the South Asia Center.
Eligibility is restricted to undergraduates and graduates who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents AND who are enrolled full-time in a program of study at Syracuse University that includes intensive foreign language and area studies coursework or dissertation work that is enhanced by foreign language training. Undergraduate applicants must have completed at least a year of college-level coursework in the
language of study so that they are eligible to enroll at the intermediate level or above.
Summer 2011 Fellowships – Deadline: February 11.
The South Asia Center requests applications from qualified undergraduates and graduate students for FLAS Summer fellowships. The South Asia Summer 2011 FLAS program provides for tuition up to $4,000 and a stipend of $2,500 for intensive (6 or 8 weeks) study in the United States or abroad at the intermediate or advanced level in any
South Asian language at approved South Asian language programs. The application, additional information and guidelines can be found at http://www.maxwell.syr.edu/moynihan/sac/FLAS/.
