The competition for Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships and awards at UW-Madison is now open.
The African Studies Program encourages students of African languages to submit applications for Summer 2013 and Academic Year 2013-2014 fellowships and awards.
Application deadline is February 15, 2013.
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. 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.
