Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships support students taking less-commonly taught language and area studies coursework. This program provides both academic year and summer fellowships to graduate and undergraduate students at the intermediate level and above.
The goals of the program include:
to assist in the development of knowledge, resources, and trained personnel for modern foreign language and area/international studies;
to stimulate the attainment of foreign language acquisition and fluency; and
to develop a pool of international experts to meet national needs.
FLAS Fellowships are possible because of grants provided from the U.S. Department of Education to the UNC area and global studies centers. Beginning with the 2015 cycle, FLAS applications to all UNC centers will use the common FLAS@UNC online application.
