FLAS Fellowships may only be used at institutions whose programs meet the standards of the US Department of Education (USDE) for intensive training (one year equivalency), course length (6 weeks minimum) and classroom hours (140 minimum). If you are awarded a summer FLAS award, please contact the program coordinator to verify that your program is eligible for FLAS, as they are subject to approval by the DOE. In awarding FLAS for summer study, NYU gives priority to those applicants who have applied for financial aid from the programs they plan to attend. Attendance at any particular program with a FLAS fellowship will be contingent upon the availability of matching funds beyond the $5,000 Department of Education tuition cap.
The Department of Education will follow State Department travel advisories when approving FLAS travel to summer programs in the Middle East.
