FLAS @ UNC Info Session
November 17, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
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.
At the graduate level, students must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in a program of graduate or professional study. Graduate students must be in the intermediate or advanced level of study. Graduate students can apply for the beginning level of a less commonly taught language if they have achieved advanced proficiency in another European language and if learning a second language of that world area is required for the student’s overall training and expertise. (For example: if applying as a beginner in Turkish, applicants must have advanced knowledge of either French, Spanish, German, or another European language).
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. For more information, visit the area studies FLAS @ UNC page.
