The Institute for Regional and International Studies (IRIS) Awards Office has announced a series of online information sessions for students interested in applying for Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships. Below is an announcement originally posted on the IRIS website: https://iris.wisc.edu/flas-info-sessions-2021/ on November 12, 2020.
We will be hosting 4 information sessions about the Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) awards for the study of less commonly taught languages at the UW-Madison for summer 2021 and academic year 2021-2022!
Open to US citizens & permanent residents, FLAS awards support students – both undergraduate & graduate students – in acquiring foreign language & area studies competencies. We will discuss eligibility requirements, languages supported, the application & award process, and more.
All four sessions will be online and accessible via https://go.wisc.edu/FLASInfoSession (you can log in 15 minutes prior to the event) and are scheduled for:
