Penn Middle East Center co-hosts FLAS information session

On January 23, 2015, undergraduate and graduates students gathered to learn about Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships. Representatives from Penn’s National Resource Centers (Middle East Center, Africa Center, and South Asia Center) gave a brief presentation on the types of opportunities available for Penn students.  They also explained the FLAS Fellowship eligibility requirements and application procedures. 

This information session not only gave interested students background about the FLAS Fellowship program, but it also gave them ample time to get their specific questions answered.  Many students stated that they had summer research plans and language acquisition goals, and the National Resource Center representatives were able to explain what options FLAS Fellowships presented to help students achieve their goals.
