The Atlanta Global Studies Center (AGSC), a consortium of Georgia Tech and Georgia State University is pleased to announce the competition for 2020-2021 FLAS Fellowships.

The FLAS fellowships assist undergraduate and graduate students in achieving competency in selected foreign languages in combination with international and area studies coursework.

 The FLAS Fellowships are available for the less commonly taught languages of Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Persian/Farsi, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili.

Funding for French, German, and Spanish languages may be available ONLY for GRADUATE students at an advanced-level. French, German and Spanish are NOT eligible languages for UNDERGRADUATE students.

FLAS fellowships can be used to study abroad or on campus.

Students can apply for both Summer and Academic Year fellowships, which are evaluated separately so there is no disadvantage to applying to both.

To apply, please read and follow the instructions below carefully.

Application Deadline: January 3, 2020 | 11:59 pm EST

Eligibility:

  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Application submitted to, enrollment in, or acceptance for enrollment in a Georgia Tech or Georgia State degree program
  • Undergraduates must pursue study of a language at the intermediate (2nd year) level or beyond and can only apply to study less commonly taught languages of Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Persian/Farsi, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili. French, German and Spanish are NOT eligible languages for undergraduates.
  • Graduate students may pursue language study at the introductory level ONLY IF they already have advanced-level proficiency in another language related to their area of study or research and studying a second language is relevant to the student’s studies and potential future career. This should be explained clearly in the statement of purpose. Graduate students are also eligible to apply to study advanced-level French, German or Spanish but preference will be given for intermediate or advanced-level study in less commonly taught languages of Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Persian/Farsi, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili.
