Summer FLAS Fellowships awarded by ESC are open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at any institution of higher education, working toward a degree in any field. The target language must relate to the student’s research and/or professional. Summer FLAS Fellowships may be used by Summer Language Institute (SLI) students taking any language other than Russian. 

• FLAS wards are designed for students taking language courses at the second year or higher level. Under certain circumstances, graduate students may be eligible for FLAS funding to study less commonly taught languages at the first-year level; please contact irm24@pitt.edu for more information.

2. The language program must last a minimum of 6 weeks.

The summer FLAS Fellowship provides awardees with $5000 towards tuition and fees in addition to a stipend of approximately $2,500. The Fellowship may be supplemented with funding from other sources.  Applicants will be notified of award decisions by the middle of April.
