Funding: Graduate Students / FLAS Fellowships

APSI administers both academic year (AY) and Summer FLAS fellowships for the U.S. Department of Education. For both fellowships, priority will be given to students who are pursuing advanced level of language proficiency in Chinese, Japanese or Korean; and to Master's degree students who are more likely to pursue government service or enter a professional field. Summer FLAS applications are now open to undergraduate students as well. We are now accepting applications for Summer 2014 and Academic Year 2014-2015 FLAS fellowships. Deadline for Summer 2014 is Monday, February 3, 2014. Deadline for Academic Year 2014-2015 is Monday, March 3, 2014.

The purpose of the summer FLAS Fellowships is to permit students to study Chinese, Japanese, or Korean on an intensive basis. The degree of intensity must be equivalent to covering one year of college-level instruction in the summer (for those at the beginner level, the minimum required number of contact hours is 140; for those at the intermediate or advanced level, the minimum required number of contact hours is 120). Please note that according to U.S. Department of Education guidelines, FLAS Fellows studying any language on an overseas program must be at the intermediate or advanced level of study of the language in question.

The purpose of the Academic Year fellowships is to encourage the study or use of foreign languages in combination with international or area studies. Priority will be given to students enrolling in a foreign language course and at least one area studies course each semester while completing full-time course work. In some cases fellowships will be awarded for the use of the advanced foreign language while carrying out overseas dissertation research during the academic year.

This grant is administered by APSI.
