The FLAS Fellowship gave me the confidence to continue my educational pursuit of language studies while additionally providing a multitude of opportunities to make connections with people within my same area of study through various online events. I am more than grateful to be a recipient of this prestigious award as it has helped me establish my field of study here at KU
"My FLAS Fellowship has allowed to pursue professional proficiency in Kiswahili, which I have used to collaborate with students and scholars here in Kansas and in Tanzania. These experiences have significantly impacted the direction of my research and my professional goals".
"FLAS allows me to learn from East African cultures and the Swahili language as an urban planning student. Because of FLAS, I approach each research project with a sense of cultural humility".
