FLAS Fellowships support graduate students who seek to establish expertise in area studies and in language proficiency (Canadian Studies and in French). FLAS is a US government program to promote the training of students who intend to make their careers in college or university teaching, government service, or other employment where knowledge of French language and francophone cultures is essential.

Students must demonstrate an Intermediate level or higher proficiency in French
Students will be working at the Graduate level on a Canadian-related subject (comparative work (Ex. US/Canada) is accepted)

Application deadline: December 1, 2021
