Summer Language Fellowships

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, all travel must follow current guidelines, which are detailed in the International Institute Travel Policy.

The Summer Language Fellowships consists of Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships  and the Summer Language Fellowship.

  • Please note that only domestic students are eligible for the Summer FLAS Fellowship.
  • If you have applied for Summer FLAS Fellowship, you will also automatically be considered for the Summer Language Fellowship.

Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships

Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships  provide funding to current UM undergraduate and graduate students to encourage the study of less commonly taught modern foreign languages in an intensive summer program in a context of an overall academic program of area studies, international studies or international aspects of professional studies.

Intensive language programs must teach the equivalent of a full academic year (fall and winter terms) of language classes at the University of Michigan. Students may attend the University of Michigan Summer Language Institute (SLI) or another eligible summer intensive language program in the United States or overseas.

Deadline: February 1

Note: Study abroad programs for Summer 2022 are contingent on permission to travel abroad from U-M, State Department, and ultimately the US Department of Education.

You can access the Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships Application here.
