Funding for Foreign Language Study!
Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) awards
Students are invited to attend upcoming information sessions to learn more about Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) awards for the study of critical and less commonly taught languages at UW-Madison.
FLAS fellowships are funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the UW’s area & international studies centers to assist students in acquiring foreign language and area or international studies competencies.
The application for Summer 2020 and Academic Year 2020-2021 FLAS awards is open now!
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Preference will be given to applicants with a high level of academic ability and with previous language training. The application deadline is February 10, 2020.
