Students of Portuguese Discuss the FLAS Fellowship

October 11, 2017

“Going to grad school was a big stress for my family and for me because I wanted to do it without taking out more loans, because I already have all my undergraduate loans.   FLAS was magical and helpful and the cherry on top is that I get to learn another language, which is amazing.” -Delany Elise Pelz

In a video produced by the UW Language Learning Center, two 2016-17 Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) awardees in Portuguese discuss what the FLAS Fellowship meant for them.  They also offer tips on applying to the FLAS, so applicants to the FLAS Fellowship: read on!  Delany Elise Pelz (MA Hispanic Studies) was awarded a FLAS Fellowship for Portuguese by the Center for Global Studies, and Hannah Roberts (BA Psychology) was awarded a FLAS Fellowship for Portuguese by the Center for West European Studies.
