FELLOWSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT


Date:  February 9, 2012

To:    All UF Graduate Students

Cc:    All UF Graduate Coordinators and Staff

From:  UF Center for Latin American Studies

RE:    March 1: Deadline to Apply for FLAS Summer Fellowships


FLAS Summer Fellowships

Through support from the US Department of Education, the UF Center for Latin American Studies offers Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Summer Fellowships. FLAS Summer Fellowships support participation in an intensive study program of a less-commonly-taught Latin American language (i.e., Brazilian Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Maya, Quechua, etc.). The fellowship covers the majority of program-related fees. When possible, the award also includes a travel stipend.

Priority will be given to students pursuing a Master's degree, graduate certificate, or undergraduate minor/certificate in Latin American Studies at UF. UF professional school students are also encouraged to apply.  

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled full-time at UF as undergraduate or graduate students.  Applications will also be accepted from non-UF graduate students with citizenship or permanent residency who are planning to attend the UF Language and Culture Program in Rio de Janeiro.  Non-UF undergraduate students cannot apply.

UF undergraduate applicants must have at least intermediate proficiency in their selected language of study.  There is no proficiency requirement for graduate students.  

Selected language programs must provide a minimum of 140 contact hours of instruction at the beginning and intermediate levels or 120 contact hours at the advanced level. (The UF Language and Culture Program in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil meets these requirements.) Programs must be at least six weeks in length.

Graduate students with beginning language proficiency must select a program in the US, unless there is no program offered in the target language in the US. Applicants with intermediate or advanced proficiency can select programs in the US or abroad.

Applicants who would like to attend the UF Language and Culture Program in Rio de Janeiro with a Summer FLAS Fellowship must have completed two semesters of introductory Portuguese or one semester of accelerated Portuguese (the latter is offered at UF in fall, spring and summer A.)

Fellowship Requirements

Recipients are required to complete an online report as well as take a language proficiency exam both before and after the fellowship period. After the fellowship period is completed, recipients will complete a short survey about their job placement every two years. Summer 2012 recipients will complete surveys in 2014, 2016 and 2018.  

Application Deadline

March 1, 2012
