Academic Year FLAS Application

With funding provided by the U.S. Department of Education, the international and area studies centers listed on the attached page expect to award non-service fellowships for the 2014-2015 academic year. As in previous years the fellowships are available to graduate and professional school students.

The purpose of the 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 to graduate students for the use of the advanced foreign language while carrying out overseas research during the academic year. The languages for which fellowships are offered by each center are indicated below. The FLAS competitions are open to graduate and professional school students currently enrolled at Duke. In most cases, native speakers of these languages, even if U.S. citizens or permanent residents, are not eligible for a fellowship in their native language.
