FLAS: Summer Fellowships

Summer Domestic and International Programs

Intermediate learners have a choice between domestic and overseas programs, while beginning-level language learners must attend domestic programs. Advanced learners are expected to study overseas. Exceptions can be made to these conventions when required by program availability.

**Students who already receive funding through a federally funded language program (ex: CLS, Boren, Flagship programs) are not eligible for additional FLAS funding to study the language currently being funded. Students are, however, encouraged to apply for the FLAS for a language that differs from the one for which they are already receiving funding.
