Cornell senior Charlie Accurso describes his experiences as a Foreign Language and Area Studies fellow, and the many opportunities he has been afforded as a speaker of many languages.
FLAS Fellowships are funded by the U.S. Department of Education and help graduate and undergraduate students acquire high levels of competence in languages that are deemed critical to the national needs of the United States, and also to gain a fuller understanding of the areas, regions, or countries in which those languages are commonly used. At Cornell, FLAS fellowships are offered through the South Asia Program and the Southeast Asia Program.
The following languages are offered:
- Bengali, Hindi, Nepali, Persian, Punjabi, Sinhala, Tamil, Modern Tibetan, Urdu (SAP)
- Burmese, Khmer, Indonesian/Malay, Filipino (Tagalog), Thai, Vietnamese (SEAP)
