National Resource Center and Foreign Language and Area Studies Grants

We're delighted to report that IEAS has been awarded both the National Resource Center and Foreign Language and Area Studies grants for the 2014-18 cycle. These Title VI grants will provide $220K in NRC program funds and $253.5K in FLAS fellowships for students (both academic year and summer). This amounts to $473,500 per year for East Asian studies at Berkeley, or $1,894,000 over the next four years. These grants will fund, among other things, a number of new research and outreach programs at IEAS, and courses in East Asian Languages and Cultures (including Mongolian language, seminar courses in Korean, and new courses in Tibetan); as well as 7-8 academic year and 4-5 summer FLAS awards for our graduate students.

Students interested in applying for FLAS fellowships should consult the Graduate Division Fellowship Office's webpage at http://grad.berkeley.edu/wp-content/uploads/flas_academic_year_application.pdf.
