Call for Applications for FLAS Fellowships
November 2, 2017
The LAII is pleased to announce its call for applications for US Department of Education Academic Year and Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships. The deadline for both the 2018-2019 Academic Year FLAS Fellowship and the 2018 Summer FLAS Fellowship is Friday, February 12, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
The LAII makes available two types of FLAS Fellowships: Academic Year and Summer. Students may apply for one or both. The FLAS academic year fellowship supports training in Portuguese, K'iche' Maya, Quechua and Quichua. The fellowship provides tuition and fees for the fall and spring semesters plus a stipend. Recipients of academic year FLAS Fellowships are required to take courses at UNM in K'iche' Maya, Portuguese, Quechua or Quichua as well as Latin American area studies courses. FLAS summer fellowships cover expenses associated with less-commonly-taught language programs approved by the US Department of Education but administered by universities throughout the United States. Some programs are held in the United States and others are held in Latin America. The summer 2018 programs list is expected to become available by mid-December.
