FLAS Fellowship applications now open

The Foreign Language Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship Program application window opened November 1, 2017. All applications and supporting materials are due January 12, 2018. Both Summer 2018 and Academic Year 2018-19 FLAS Fellowships are available.

FLAS Fellowships provides almost $1 million in funding to UT undergraduate and graduate students each year to study foreign languages and cultures at UT and elsewhere in the US and abroad. For 2018-19, the South Asia Institute will award both Summer and Academic Year (AY) Fellowships. These Fellowships will be available contingent on UT receiving funds from the US Department of Education as a Title VI National Resource Center.

Approved languages for SAI's FLAS Fellowships include Bengali, Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Urdu, and Persian (if it relates directly to the study of South Asia).  Other contemporary South Asian languages may be approved, but Sanskrit is not considered an applicable language by the Department of Education.

For eligibility requirements, a complete list of application materials, and the link to the application form, visit our FLAS Fellowships information page.
