Students enrolled in degree programs at institutions other than UW are welcome to apply for Summer FLAS awards for language programs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Undergraduate students may not apply for a FLAS at the beginning level of language study; undergraduate students must be applying to study at the intermediate (2nd year) or advanced (3rd year or above) level of a less commonly taught language to receive a fellowship.

Graduate students might be granted an exception to allow study of the beginning level of a less commonly taught language with FLAS support if the student has achieved advanced proficiency in another language of the world area of specialization, and if learning a second language of that world area is required for the student’s overall training and expertise. Graduate students who are applying for beginning language study will need to explain why an exception should be granted as part of their application.
