At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

  • Summer FLAS Fellowships
Students may use the fellowship to study any less commonly taught language of the region, including Brazilian Portuguese, Amerindian languages, and Haitian Kreyole.

To be eligible, the language program must have a minimum duration of 6 weeks and at least 140 hours of formal classroom contact (120 for study at the advanced level).
2011-12 Academic Year Fellowships

Fellowships provide up to $4,000 tuition plus a stipend of $2,500. In Summer 2011, CLAS will sponsor a FLAS-eligible program in Aymara, and can provide assistance identifying other high-quality eligible programs. Students may also propose any other language program that meets the minimum duration and contact hour requirements.

  • 2011-12 Academic Year Fellowships
Priority is given to: in-residence students who demonstrate a strong area focus; students advancing in the language; and, in Portuguese, to students who already demonstrate proficiency equivalent to one year.

FLAS Fellows must enroll in the language course every quarter during the academic year, and must also enroll in courses related to the area where the language is spoken. Eligibility is limited to students in the first 5 years of doctoral study. In 2011-12, students may use a FLAS Fellowship to study Brazilian Portuguese (elementary, intermediate, and advanced), Haitian Kreyole (elementary), and Yucatec Maya.

Please see the website for additional details.
Questions about eligible language programs may be directed to Josh Beck .
