CLACS offers Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships for UWM students pursuing a Latin American/Caribbean area studies specialization in their graduate program. The fellowship promotes training in less commonly taught languages of the region through participation in programs of intensive foreign language instruction offered in the U.S. or abroad. These portable fellowships include tuition and a $2,500 stipend for study in an approved intensive language program.
CLACS is pleased to announce the Summer 2007 FLAS recipients:
Matthew Dalstrom (Ph.D. candidate, Anthropology) will study Level II Yucatec Maya through the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill program (June 4 – July 14) in Yucatán, Mexico.
