The University of Utah offers U.S. Department of Education Title VI funded Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships. Students in any department who will include FLAS-eligible language study in their schedule and fulfill FLAS eligibility requirements can apply. 56 University of Utah students received FLAS fellowships during Summer 2022 and Academic Year 2022-23. Yearly, we provide up to $607,000 in scholarship support to undergraduate and graduate students.
FLAS 2023-2024 Notifications
FLAS notifications will be sent to Umail email addresses, or to the email addresses listed on the FLAS applications for applicants that did not list a Unid number and Umail address.
We anticipate sending Summer 2023 notifications late March or early April 2023, and Academic Year 2023-2024 notifications in April or May. If you have not received an email notification by June 2023, please let our office know.
FLAS 2023-2024 Applications
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.
