With generous support from the U.S. Department of Education and Ohio State's Graduate School, over 80 Ohio State undergraduate and graduate students are undergoing training in modern foreign languages or international studies under the Title VI Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship program. Over $1.25 million in FLAS Fellowships were awarded from four of Ohio State’s Area Studies Centers for the 2013-2014 academic year and summer 2014.

The Center for Latin American Studies distributed over $278,500 in FLAS fellowships, of which 21 went to Ohio State students. The East Asian Studies Center distributed over $327,000 to 23 students. The Middle East Studies Center awarded over $290,000 to 19 students and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies awarded over $356,000 to 25 students.

FLAS fellowships are available for Ohio State graduate and professional school students – as well as select undergraduate students – pursuing a course of study that requires advanced foreign language and area studies training. To learn more about these fellowships, visit oia.osu.edu.
