Yearly, we provide up to $607,000 in scholarship support to undergraduate and graduate students.


FLAS Applications 2023-2024

Applicants with a UNID should follow the link below, which will direct you to the application page where you will need to sign in with your UNID on the top right. Once signed in, you will first be prompted to complete your "General Application." Then keyword search "flas" and click "apply." Please use Chrome or Firefox, not Internet Explorer.

NOTE: The online application allows transcripts and letters of recommendation to be uploaded directly. If you or your recommenders experience difficulty uploading these files, try using file names that only contain letters and numbers. File names that contain special characters (-, _, :, etc.) may be rejected by the online system.

PDF application Instructions:

  • Please submit the PDF application by email to flas@utah.edu. Send all materials in one email, and in one combined PDF file.

The application materials, excluding letters of recommendation, must be sent directly by the applicant (please do not request for transcripts to be sent directly to our office).
  • Candidates using a PDF application should provide their recommenders with a Recommendation Form to be submitted along with their letters. Click Here to Download the Recommendation Form
  • Letters of recommendation and recommendation forms must be sent directly from the recommender, not the applicant, to flas@utah.edu
