FLAS Academic Year Fellowships

FLAS Academic Year Fellowships

The Center for Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt University receives funding from the Department of Education to support Foreign Language Area Studies (FLAS) Awards for Intensive Studies of Portuguese or indigenous Latin American languages. Fellowships provide tuition expenses for the study of Portuguese, Kˈicheˈ Mayan, or another indigenous language (up to $5,000) and a stipend of $2,500. Any graduate or undergraduate student with Luso-Brazilian or indigenous language-related interests and who is a U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident is eligible to apply.  Fellowships are for one year, but can be extended provided the student remains in good standing and successfully completes the FLAS re-application process.
