Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships provide funding to graduate students to encourage the study of critical and less commonly taught foreign languages in combination with area studies or international aspects of professional studies. Fellowships are funded by the U.S. Department of Education to promote the training of students who intend to make their careers in higher education, government service, or other employment where knowledge of foreign languages and cultures is essential.

CLAS is offering FLAS awards to graduate students studying Spanish, Portuguese, Nahuatl, or other Latin American languages. Fellowships are offered for both academic year and summer programs.

The application deadline for both the Academic Year 2019-20 and Summer 2019 FLAS is January 30, 2019. Applications are available on Tango, https://tango.berkeley.edu/

For more information about the program and applications materials, please see http://grad.berkeley.edu/flas/ or contact Julia Byrd, CLAS Vice Chair, julia.byrd@berkeley.edu
