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 2008 FLAS recipient:
Colleen Adams (M.A. candidate, Political Science) will study elementary Mixtec through the San Diego State University program (June 16 - July 24) in Oaxaca, Mexico.
FLAS Fellowships are funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
