Letters of Recommendation


Thank you for supporting students as they apply for U.S. Department of Education Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships.

Submission Instructions

  • Using the links provided in the sidebar, please select and email the correct FLAS coordinator in order to submit a letter of recommendation on behalf of a student.
  • Please indicate the student's name and the fellowship period (e.g. Summer 20201 or Academic Year 2021-2022)

Applications for Summer 2020 or Academic Year 2020-2021 are online, however references are required to submit letters of recommendation via email to the appropriate 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 25, 2021); 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 significantly impact the student's application.
