Call for FLAS Summer 2012 Applications
Syracuse University’s South Asia Center announces its FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) Fellowship Competition for Summer 2012.
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 2012 Fellowships – Deadline: Friday, Feb. 10
The South Asia Center requests applications from qualified undergraduates and graduate students for FLAS Summer fellowships. The South Asia Summer 2012 FLAS program provides for tuition up to $5,000 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. Summer FLAS can also be given to incoming graduate students at the introductory level to study intensive language at a US institution.

All fellowships awarded are contingent upon our continued funding by the U.S. Department of Education’s Foreign Language and Area Studies grant.
