Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships
Welcome to the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship Application!
FLAS Fellowships provide tuition support 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 world regions and languages for which fellowships are available, number and types of fellowships in each world region, and fellowship award amounts are all contingent upon US/ED program approval, federal regulations, as well as continued congressional funding, all of which may change from year to year.
This application includes options for Undergraduate Academic Year FLAS, Graduate Academic Year FLAS, and Summer FLAS Programs.
