Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships are awarded at UC Berkeley annually on a competitive basis for the academic year and for summer study. These fellowships provide funding to students to encourage the study of less commonly taught foreign languages in combination with area and international studies. The purpose of the FLAS program is to promote the training of students who intend to make their careers in college or university teaching, government service, or other employment where knowledge of foreign languages and cultures is essential. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. This information session, presented by the Title VI-funded National Resource Centers at UC Berkeley that manage the FLAS fellowship program, will review the application details and program requirements.
