FLAS Funds Your Study of an African Language

The Foreign Language Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship provides financial support for students interested in learning an African language.

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 either area or international studies competencies. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Funding is available for both the academic year and summer coursework.

Students receiving Academic Year Fellowships must be enrolled in full-time study for the duration of the FLAS award and must take one language course and one related area or international studies course each semester. FLAS awards may be used in some cases for undergraduates participating in official IAP programs and in very limited cases for dissertators.

Summer Fellowships are for intensive language programs either domestically or abroad. In some cases, Summer FLAS awards may be used for study on other campuses or for study at UW-Madison by non-UW students.
