Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships provide tuition and a stipend to students studying 

designated foreign languages in combination with area studies or international aspects of professional studies. The 

priority is to encourage the study of less commonly taught modern languages. FLAS Fellowships are administered by 

the University of Michigan Area Studies Centers and are awarded competitively through annual fellowship 

competitions. The U.S. Department of Education (US/ED) funds these awards under the provisions of Title VI of the 

Higher Education Act. The amount of funding and number of awards are contingent upon annual US/ED program 

approval, federal regulations, as well as continued congressional funding, all of which may change from year to year.
