A FLAS fellowship for South Asia Summer Language Institute (SASLI) covers the full tuition amount as well as a fixed stipend of $2,500. The Department of Education has prioritized students applying for the 2nd or 3rd year of study for FLAS funding. Students may be granted an exception to allow study of the beginning level if the student has achieved at least intermediate proficiency in another language of the world area of specialization or has other extenuating circumstances. Students who are applying for beginning-level language study will need to justify why an exception should be granted as part of their application. The Department of Education has final say as to whether an exception for first year study will be granted.
All applicants for funding must have completed the SASLI general application by the funding application deadline in order to be considered for SASLI funding competitions. It is completely acceptable to send the same statement of purpose for both funding and general applications, but they must be submitted to SASLI separately.
Students are encouraged to apply for as many funding opportunities as they are eligible for and will not be penalized for applying for multiple awards. If students are selected to receive more than one award, SASLI staff will work with individuals to ensure the best funding package possible.
