FLAS Fellowships for Foreign Language/International Studies

Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships & awards

Students are invited to attend upcoming information sessions & open houses to learn more about Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships and awards at UW-Madison.


FLAS fellowships are funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the UW's National Resource Centers to assist students in acquiring foreign language and area or international studies competencies.

The application for Summer 2017 and Academic Year 2017-2018 FLAS fellowships and awards will open on December 7, 2016.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Applications by students in professional fields are encouraged. Preference will be given to applicants with a high level of academic ability and with previous language training. The application deadline is February 13, 2017.

Please note that students can not apply for a FLAS to study Spanish, Chinese, Japanese or Korean. Only graduate students in professional schools can apply for a FLAS to study French or German.
