Subject: Re: FLAS fellowships
I’ve attached the FLAS flyer for your information and for distribution to your students. One update that pertains to professional school students is that the Dept of Ed has changed the requirements from 5 credits language and
5 credits area studies to 3 credits language and 3 credits area studies.
They are trying to make it easier for professional school students to fulfill their requirements. It is also possible for students to count courses in their field towards the area studies requirement if they focus their work in the course on their world region.
We had 2 engineering students with FLAS fellowships this summer.
Please let me know if you would like to meet or have me come speak to your students.
