FLAS Language Study Fellowships
PICS is a member of the International Institute (II) which administers the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship program at Michigan. FLAS fellowships provide tuition and stipend support to students studying designated foreign languages in combination with area studies or international aspects of professional studies. FLAS fellowships are available for both undergraduate and graduate students and are awarded through competitions organized by the II and its constituent area studies centers.

The International Institute also provides financial support each year to encourage international research and study. This funding includes fellowships and grants for faculty and student research and internships abroad, as well as support for conferences and events on the Michigan campus. The II is also a source of guidance and administrative support to U-M applicants for national fellowships, such as the Fulbright and Luce awards.
