News: FLAS Fellowships for Summer 2021 and Academic Year 2021-2022
Posted December 7, 2020
The Atlanta Global Studies Center (AGSC), a consortium of Georgia Tech and Georgia State University is pleased to announce the competition for 2021-2022 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 (LCTLs) of Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, 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.
Summer 2021 Fellowships
Undergraduates & graduates: living stipend of $2,500 and up to $5,000 for Georgia Tech tuition and fees and for the language program. Summer fellowships are intended for intensive language study domestically or abroad, defined as a program that offers at least 6 weeks of language instruction with 140 contact hours at the beginning (graduate students only) or intermediate levels or 120 contact hours at the advanced level.
