The UF Center for European Studies anticipates awarding Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships in the following categories for  graduate and/or undergraduate students. (Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States and be currently enrolled or accepted to a degree program at the University of Florida through a disciplinary department of their choice.)

* Summer 2010 FLAS 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 announcement of this competition is available at  

* Academic Year 2010-2011 FLAS aimed at 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, 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 and cover the cost of tuition and fees (12 credits per semester).
Full announcement of this competition is available at  

The deadline for both competitions is February 15, 2010. Please address any questions to Dr. Sinan Ciddi, FLAS Coordinator, UF Center for European Studies ([log in to unmask]).
