Summer FLAS Fellowship for Quechua and Quichua Language
Deadline: February 2, 2018

The Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center is sending out the call for our Summer 2018 FLAS Fellowships. The FLAS fellowship supports language training in Less-Commonly-Taught Languages (LCTLs), including Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Quechua, and Quichua.

Full-time, degree-seeking graduate and undergraduate students in any discipline may apply. Fellowships are available to qualified FIU and non-FIU students.  Summer FLAS Fellowship recipients are required to enroll in a FLAS-approved Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Quechua, or Quichua language program. For a list of last year’s FLAS-approved programs, visit http://www.claspprograms.org/pages/detail/5/Language, you may email vcaviede@fiu.edu for information on the 2018 FLAS approved programs. Students must apply to an approved program prior to submitting a FLAS Fellowship application. Proof of program application submission will be required to certify FLAS funding eligibility.

The Summer FLAS fellowship covers tuition and fees (up to $5,000) for Summer language training in the U.S. or abroad. Additionally, fellowship recipients are awarded a stipend (approximately $2,500).

Undergraduate student applicants must be prepared to study one of the approved languages at the intermediate or advanced level. Undergraduate students at the beginning level of a language are not eligible.  Graduate students may study one of the approved languages (Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Quechua, or Quichua) at the beginning, intermediate, or advanced levels. However, graduate students applying to study a FLAS language at the beginning level must demonstrate that they speak another language from the region, other than English, at the advanced level.  Preference will be given to meritorious students at the intermediate or advanced level, as well as those in the professional schools (Business, Law, Medicine, Education, Journalism, Social Work, Engineering, Criminal Justice, Tourism and Hospitality, etc.), and those planning a career in U.S. government service are strongly encouraged to apply.
