The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute at the University of Georgia is pleased to announce its 2017-18 Academic Year and 2017 Summer competition for FLAS Fellowships to study Portuguese and Quechua. FLAS Fellowships are authorized under Title VI of the Higher Education Act and are administered by the United States Department of Education. The purpose of the FLAS Fellowship program is: “To assist in the development of knowledge, resources, and trained personnel for modern foreign language and area studies, to stimulate the attainment of foreign language acquisition and fluency, and to develop a pool of international experts to meet national needs.” For more information, please visit our frequently asked questions FAQ FLAS 11.24.

 Summer FLAS Fellows receive:

  • Up to $5000 for tuition and fees to be used with a FLAS-approved summer immersion program
  • $2500 as living stipend
  • Undergraduate students must be at the intermediate (at least 2000 or 2nd year) or advanced level of the language at time of fellowship.
  • Graduate students should also be at the intermediate level of the proposed language. While graduate students can receive a FLAS at the beginner level, the cases are rare and more of an exception. In these cases, the graduate student must show fluency in another language related to the area of the world.
