Don’t miss the FLAS Workshop on January 7, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. in the Reynolds Club South Lounge (5706 S University Ave, 2nd floor).
The Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship (also known as FLAS or Title VI) is an award for students concentrating in modern foreign language and international or area studies. Institutions have to make a competitive application to the US Dept. of Education for funding in the world areas in which they want to offer languages. Thus, languages offered vary from one institution to another.
The U of C has applied for the following languages in 5 world areas. No FLAS awards in these languages can be guaranteed until funding notification from the Department of Education in early to mid Spring.
- EAST ASIA (Chinese, Japanese, Korean)
- EAST EUROPE (Armenian, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian BCS, Czech, Kazakh, Polish, Russian, Uzbek)
- LATIN AMERICA (Portuguese, others)
- MIDDLE EAST (Arabic, Hebrew, Perisan, Turkish)
- SOUTH ASIA (Bengali, Hindi, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Tibetan, Urdu)
There are two FLAS Fellowships available at the University of Chicago: academic-year and summer.
