FLAS Fellowship Information Session
November 9, 2011 - G08 Uris Hall
The area studies programs of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies just announced the 2012-13 Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship competition.
On November 9th, an Information Session on the FLAS Fellowships will be held in G08 Uris Hall from 4:30-6:00pm. FLAS Fellowship Coordinators will be on hand to answer questions about the awards and the application process. Please urge students interested in language and area studies to attend this event.
FLAS Fellowships support Cornell students studying the following less commonly taught modern foreign languages:
Arabic, Bengali, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Burmese, Cantonese, Dutch, Hindi-Urdu, Indonesian, Japanese, Khmer (Cambodian), Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Nepali, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Sinhala, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
Please note that the application process for FLAS Fellowships takes place online. Once the electronic files are complete, Directors of Graduate Studies will be asked by a program to review and rank applications from their departments if there is more than one application in their field. Second, undergraduates are now eligible for some academic year and summer fellowships. Details about these new awards, and their availability by area studies program, can be found on the websites referenced in the informational packet attached to this message.
If you have questions about the FLAS Fellowships, please do not reply to this message. Instead, visit the Einaudi Center FLAS webpage or contact the relevant area study program (reference the attached information packet): http://www.einaudi.cornell.edu/flas
