FLAS Fellowships

FLAS fellowships are designed to support graduate and undergraduate students who are studying Southeast Asian languages and area studies courses at Intermediate level or higher. Languages for academic year fellowships are Filipino, Indonesian, Khmer, Thai or Vietnamese. In summer, additional SEA languages are eligible.

Selection for the award is based on the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents.
  • Academic performance and potential as evidenced by academic transcript, letters of recommendation, and statement of purpose.
  • The extent to which overall course of study focuses on Southeast Asia.
  • The level of planned language study. More advanced levels are preferred.
Summer 2020 fellowships are for intensive language programs only. They provide a stipend of $2,500 plus tuition and fees to a maximum of $5,000, and up to $1,000 for travel. FLAS funds may be used for intensive summer language study at SEASSI or elsewhere. In order to qualify for funding, the summer intensive language program must last at least 6 weeks and provide at least 140 contact hours for beginning and intermediate level courses, or 120 contact hours for advanced level coursework.

Academic year 2020-2021 fellowships provide a total stipend of $15,000 for graduate students and $5,000 for undergraduates.  Academic Year tuition and fees are paid up to $18,000 for graduate students and $10,000 for undergraduates. The Academic Year fellowship requires that students take one Southeast Asian language and one area studies course for letter grades each quarter for the entire year in residence at UCLA. AY awards may be used for dissertation fieldwork research abroad or dissertation writing for students at the advanced level of language proficiency, but this must be approved in advance.

Applications will open November 18, 2019.
