Online Info Session on FLAS Summer Fellowships for Tulane Graduate Students

January 15th, 2020
4 PM


The Stone Center’s Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) summer fellowship applications are now up. FLAS fellowships are available to graduate students to study the less commonly taught languages of Latin America, most often Portuguese, Kaqchikel Maya, Haitian Creole, and other indigenous Latin American languages such as Yucatec Maya, K’iche’ Maya, Nahuatl, Quechua among others. Funded through Title VI legislation, the goal of the FLAS fellowship program is train students to reach advanced levels of proficiency in the less commonly taught languages of a world region, ours being Latin America. Summer FLAS fellowships are primarily granted for students to study with our Summer in Brazil: Portuguese Language & Culture and the Mayan Language Institute in Guatemala: Intensive Language & Culture Program in K’iche’ and Kaqchikel Maya. Students can also apply to other intensive language programs for languages not offered at Tulane University, the most comprehensive list can be found on the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs Language Committee page.

We welcome all interested graduate students to join us on Wednesday, 1/15 at 4 pm for an online for information on the FLAS Summer fellowship—what it is and how to apply. Please find information on how to join the online session below:
