Letter of Recommendation Submission
On behalf of the FLAS Selection Committees, we thank you for supporting students as they apply for U.S. Department of Education Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships. Using the links provided below, you may submit letters of recommendation. Please be sure to select the correct link that corresponds to the fellowship term selected by the student. For example, if a student is applying to study Chinese for the Summer 2020 fellowship term, select "East Asia Summer 2020."
Applications for Summer 2020 or Academic Year 2020-2021 are online, however references are required to submit letters of recommendation via email to the approriate FLAS coordinator (as determined by the student). Students must submit their application before references can submit their recommendations. Students are encouraged to speak with references and provide them with materials (e.g. statement of purpose, resume, CV, etc.) well in advance of the reference deadline (January 26, 2020); students are responsible for directing references to send letters to the appropriate FLAS Coordinator. A complete application requires 2 letters of recommendation; failure to submit a letter of recommendation by the deadline will signifcantly impact the student's application.
