Thanks to a late increase in funding from the U.S. Department of Education, CGS will be able to offer several supplementary FLAS fellowships to support graduate and undergraduate study in academic year 2019-20. This competition will be held in Fall 2019 (with an application deadline of October 15) and will be a one-time supplement to the regular competition that was held in January of 2019.  If you have applied last January but were not awarded a FLAS, we encourage you to re-submit your application for these supplementary awards. New applicants are also welcome.
