Congratulations to MA student R. L. Hughes, who was recently granted a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship to study Indonesian in Yogyakarta, Central Java this past summer (2018). Hughes attended language classes full-time in her pursuit to attain superior-level proficiency. The FLAS fellowship has given Hughes the opportunity to not only develop her language skills, but also to form connections furthering her goal to teach Indonesian in the future. Additionally, the fellowship has helped her deepen her theoretical understanding of the cognitive functions of adult learners in acquiring Indonesian as a foreign language.
The Foreign Language and Area Studies scholarship is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
