Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply for the Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships to study less commonly taught languages.  FLAS fellowships can be used for either summer or academic year study and awards are between $5,000 and $18,000 to be applied towards tuition and, if funds are available, a stipend of between $2,500 and $15,000.

KU offers FLAS-approved study abroad programs in South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. Students may also apply for a FLAS to study on approved student-initiated programs that meet FLAS requirements.  Programs are available for beginning, intermediate, and advanced language learning.
