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:

  • Thursday, December 3, 2020 @ 3pm

  • Tuesday, January 19, 2021 @ 2pm
  • Monday, February 1, 2021 @ 4pm

No pre-registration required!

Information about FLAS awards is available on the website – http://flas.wisc.edu – with additional details available on the FLAS FAQs page and from the FLAS coordinator of each awarding center.

The FLAS application itself is currently being updated and will open later in November/early December. If you have additional questions you can email Mark Lilleleht at awards@iris.wisc.edu.
