FLAS fellowships are funded by the US Department of Education and administered by the UW's National Resource Centers to assist students in acquiring foreign language and either area or international studies competencies. FLAS awards are only available for specific languages, and are contingent on federal funding.
Every fall, the Wisconsin School of Business chooses up to six undergraduates to attend the Middle East Institute annual conference in Washington DC, with funding from the Donald C. Leidel International Business Scholarship Fund.
The MESP encourages its students to spend time abroad. Studying in a Middle Eastern country provides firsthand exposure to the region’s society and culture and leads to greater fluency in foreign languages through interaction with native speakers.
In addition to these intellectual and professional benefits, students will have the opportunity to travel and make new friends, leading to memories that will last a lifetime!
UW's International Academic Programs currently has several study abroad opportunities in the region.
