South Asia Center call for Summer 2013 proposals
Syracuse University’s South Asia Center announces its FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) Fellowship Competition for Summer 2013.
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 South Asia Center through which these fellowships are administered.
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 2013 Fellowships – Deadline: Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013
The South Asia Center requests applications from qualified undergraduates and graduate students for FLAS Summer fellowships. The South Asia Summer 2013 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. In addition to applying for FLAS, students must also apply for the summer language program of their choice: usually these are the American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) Summer Language Program (www.indiastudies.org/) for study in India or The South Asian Studies Language Institute (SASLI), held at the University of Wisconsin (sasli.wisc.edu/). Summer FLAS can also be given to incoming graduate students at the introductory level to study intensive language at SASLI. The application, additional information and guidelines can be found at www.maxwell.syr.edu/moynihan/sac/FLAS/. All fellowships awarded are contingent upon our continued funding by
the U.S. Department of Education’s Foreign Language and Area Studies grant.
