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 and a monthly stipend. U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents interested in pursuing graduate study at Vanderbilt and those with interest in Luso-Brazilian or indigenous languages are 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.
