What is FLAS?

Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships support undergraduate and graduate study in modern foreign languages in combination with area studies, international studies, or international or area aspects of professional studies. The purpose of the FLAS program is to train students to integrate global knowledge into a future career, particularly in areas of national need, such as college or university teaching, government service, and business. FLAS recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enrolled full-time. During the academic year, fellows must take a language course and an area studies course each semester. During the summer, fellows must complete the equivalent of one year of language study. FLAS fellowships can be used to study abroad or on campus. Read more about the EU Center's FLAS program here.
