How to Apply


Follow these four, easy steps when applying for a summer or academic year FLAS fellowship:

  1. Choose your language
  2. Complete the FLAS application checklist.
  3. Complete the FLAS application, using a KU Online ID or Non-KU Account. 
  4. Save your information and double check your application before you press submit!

It is the student's responsibility to make certain that the application is complete; incomplete applications will not be considered. Under certain circumstances paper applications and all supporting materials may be submitted by email. Please contact the FLAS coordinator for the Center(s) you are applying to if you need us to consider this option. 

Please be aware that the application form does not allow you to save progress and/or return to it at a later time – the form must be filled out in its entirety before submission. Therefore, it is recommended that you reserve enough time to fill out the entire application, including all required file uploads, in order to minimize loss of progress/time. If you would prefer to work offline, or to prepare your application materials in advance, download the document version of the application.

*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; students are responsible for directing references to send letters to the appropriate FLAS Coordinator. A complete application requires 2 letters of recommendation; incomplete applications will not be considered.

**References will be notified via email by the applicant to submit a letter of recommendation after they have submitted an application. References must submit letters of recommendation via email to the appropriate FLAS Coordinator (determined by the student) by January 25, 2021 or February 15 (end of day). Failure to submit a letter of recommendation by the deadline will signifcantly impact the student's application.
