Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships provide funding to students to encourage the study of critical and less commonly taught foreign languages in combination with area studies, international studies or international aspects of professional studies. These fellowships are funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI of the Higher Education Act of 1965. Funding is available to both undergraduate and graduate ASU students.
The Center for Asian Research offers both academic year and summer FLAS awards to eligible undergraduate and graduate students. Students with advanced knowledge of Burmese, Chinese, Hindi/Urdu, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, or Vietnamese are encouraged to apply for the academic year FLAS. Graduate students who receive the AY FLAS fellowship are provided with an annual stipend of $20,000 and up to $18,000 in tuition and fees. Undergraduate students who receive the AY FLAS fellowship receive a $5,000 annual stipend and up to $10,000 in tuition and fees.
Please note that accepted languages are subject to change.
The summer FLAS fellowship awards eligible students with $2,500 stipend and up to $5,000 in summer tuition to go towards a summer intensive language program of their choice. The tuition funding does not cover housing, travel, or meals.
