FLAS FELLOWSHIPS 2007-2008:

1. Title VI FLAS Fellowship Application
2. Summer 2007 Title VI Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships


1. TITLE VI FLAS FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION

TITLE VI FLAS FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION
2007 - 2008 Academic Year
 
The University of Florida's Center for European Studies anticipates awarding
Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships for the upcoming
academic year. These fellowships are funded by the US Department of
Education (USDOE) under Title VI of the Higher Education Act.

Fellowships are awarded to students combining graduate work in an academic
discipline with European area and language studies. Fellowships are offered
for any one of the lesser and least commonly taught European languages
(Czech, Hungarian, Italian, Modern Greek, Polish, Portuguese, and Russian).
In exceptional cases funding may also be available to support advanced
language training in French, German or Spanish. 

Applications will be accepted for pursuit of a graduate degree in any UF
department. The Center recommends that fellowship recipients also work
toward fulfilling the requirements for a Certificate in European Area
Studies in conjunction with their specific graduate degree requirements.

Fellowships provide a stipend of $15,000 per academic year and cover the
cost of tuition and fees (12 credits per semester). Applicants must be a
citizen or permanent resident of the United States and be admitted to a
graduate program at the University of Florida. Successful applicants will
show:

* Clear promise of completing a graduate degree with a European
concentration and a demonstrated need to acquire proficiency in a European
language and 

* A plan to pursue field research in Europe using the language of study. 

* An excellent academic record as demonstrated by course grades, GRE scores,
and strong recommendations

Application Deadline: February 12, 2007
 
Application Procedure:

Summer fellowships provide students with an opportunity to undertake
intensive European language study in any USDOE approved program. 

Intensive language study is defined by the USDOE as at least 140 hours of
instruction for students at the beginning and intermediate levels, and 120
hours for advanced-level students. The summer FLAS award should provide each
fellow with the equivalent of a full academic year's worth of language
instruction, and students must attend a program that is a minimum of six
weeks in length. 

Summer fellowships cover tuition at the host institution and provide a
stipend of $2,500. Travel awards (covering the actual cost of travel only,
up to $1000) may also be available. The statement of purpose accompanying
the application for a summer fellowship should indicate why summer study is
desired and how it will contribute to the candidate's program of study.
Applicants must also provide specific information on the program they wish
to attend, i.e. fees, contact hours, instructor qualifications, etc.

Note: Information on intensive summer programs for European language
