RE: FLAS Fellowship Application Deadline: February 14
The University of Florida's Center for European Studies (CES) will be awarding Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships for academic year 2011-2012. These fellowships are funded by the US Department of Education (USDOE) under Title VI of the Higher Education Act. Applicants must be currently enrolled or accepted to a degree program at the University of Florida, either as a graduate or undergraduate student in a disciplinary department of their choice. (Among undergraduate students, only those pursuing language study at the intermediate and advanced level will be considered.) Only US citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for this fellowship.
Summer 2011 FLAS Fellowships are for the intensive study of any Europe-related language. 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. Full information about this competition is available by clicking here:
Academic Year 2011-2012 FLAS Fellowships are aimed at students combining graduate or undergraduate 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, Russian and Turkish). In exceptional cases funding may also be available to support advanced language training in French, German or Spanish. Fellowships provide a stipend of $15,000 per academic year ($5,000 for undergraduates) and cover the cost of tuition and fees (12 credits per semester).

The deadline for both competitions is Monday, 14 February 2011. Please e-mail any questions to Dr. Sinan Ciddi, FLAS Coordinator, UF Center for European Studies ([log in to unmask]).
