East Asian Languages and Literatures

Funding

Due to the rigorous course load, joint J.D./M.A. students are ineligible for Graduate Teaching positions; however, because of the interdisciplinary nature of the degree, joint  J.D./M.A. students are particularly eligible and strongly encouraged to apply for a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) » fellowship through the Center for East Asian Studies.  FLAS fellowships include:

  • Summer award - up to $5,000 for tuition and a stipend of $2,500 for living expenses for summer language study equivalent to 1 full year of language study
  • Academic Year award -  full KU tuition and a $15,000 stipend for living expenses for academic year study that includes 2 semesters of language and 6 credits or more of East Asian culture courses.
