Graduate and Professional Student FLAS Fellowships

The East Asian Studies Center seeks applications each year for Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships. These fellowships are available to all full-time graduate and professional students at all levels and in any department who are pursuing a course of study which requires advanced foreign language and area studies training. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Title VI program, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to apply (international students are not eligible).

The fellowships are expected to carry a stipend of $15,000 for the academic year and $2,500 for the summer semester. Academic year awards also carry an authorization for tuition and partial OSU fees for students in programs within the OSU Graduate School or up to $18,000 in tuition and fee support for professional school students. Summer awards carry an authorization for tuition and partial OSU fees (up to $5,000). Subject to approval, FLAS fellowships may also be used for foreign language and area studies at other U.S. or foreign institutions.
