Syracuse University's South Asia Center announces its FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) Fellowship Competition for Summer 2013 and Academic Year 2013-14. The Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship (FLAS) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI, assists students in pursuing training in order to acquire a high level of competence in one or more languages critical to national needs of the United States, and a fuller understanding of the areas, regions, or countries in which that language is commonly used. The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at Syracuse University's Maxwell School houses the South Asia Center through which these fellowships are administered. Eligibility is restricted to undergraduates and graduates who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents AND who are enrolled full-time in a program of study at Syracuse University that includes intensive foreign language and area studies coursework or dissertation work that is enhanced by foreign language training. Undergraduate applicants must have completed at least a year of college-level coursework in the language of study so that they are eligible to enroll at the intermediate level or above. Academic Year 2013-14 Fellowships - Deadline: January 31, 2013 The South Asia Center requests applications from qualified undergraduate and graduate students who wish to enhance their knowledge of a South Asian language to complement their current program of study. Languages offered include: Hindi-Urdu and Farsi (if used for historical research). Academic year fellowships consist of a scholarship of $10,000 towards the cost of tuition and $5,000 towards living expenses for undergraduates; graduate students receive 24 credits of tuition and a stipend of as much as $15,000.
