CMENAS offers U.S. Department of Education Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships to graduate and undergraduate students. FLAS provides tuition and a stipend to students studying designated foreign languages in combination with area studies or international aspects of professional studies. The priority is to encourage the study of less commonly taught modern languages. FLAS Fellowships are administered by the University of Michigan Area Studies Centers and are awarded competitively through annual fellowship competitions. The U.S. Department of Education (US/ED) funds these awards under the provisions of Title VI of the Higher Education Act. 

CMENAS administers FLAS fellowships for area studies and study of Middle Eastern and North African languages, including: Arabic, Armenian, Hebrew, Persian, Turkish, and Uzbek.

Application Deadline: February 1.
