CEAS now offering East Asia FLAS awards to students for the current academic year 2018-19

Penn's Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) was awarded funding from the US Department of Education for FLAS (Foreign Language & Area Studies) fellowships to support Penn students who study modern East Asian Languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, as well as for Mongolian and Tibetan)and either related area or international studies or East Asia-related aspects of professional fields. Up to 5 graduate students and 4 undergraduate students will be supported for the current Academic Year 2018-19. The deadline for submission of the applications will be September 10th, 2018.

New as well as continuing graduate and undergraduate students are eligible for FLAS fellowships, which include $18,000 toward tuition and a stipend of $15,000 for graduate students and for undergraduates $10,000 for tuition and $5,000 for stipend (per academic year). Students should submit complete applications directly to CEAS using this link. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible.  Although strength of proposal is a principal consideration for evaluation, financial need is also a priority.


Later this fall CEAS will solicit applications for Summer 2019 FLAS awards as well.
