Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships

Syracuse University is one of only nine universities in the United States to offer the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships, funded by the U.S. Department of Education for study in South Asia.

This award, which ranges from $2,500 to $18,000, assists students in acquiring a high level of competence in one or more modern languages spoken in South Asia and of the areas, regions or countries where that language is commonly used. Students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents enrolled in a relevant Syracuse University program are invited to apply through the South Asia Center at the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs.
