FLAC Course Development

Unfortunately there is not sufficient funding to offer FLAC Course Development grants for European Studies in 2015. Please check back starting January 2016.

The UF Center for European Studies holds annual competitions for Foreign Languages Across the Curriculum (FLAC) Course Development Grants, open to UF faculty and eligible UF graduate students, in the following European languages: Czech, French, German, modern Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. New FLAC units funded by the CES will be integrated into the “FLAC at Florida” program.

The goal of this program is to integrate the study of European topics with the practice of European languages. “FLAC at Florida” offers one-credit enhancement or “applied language” sections in various languages to accompany selected content courses in a number of participating departments including (but not limited to), Anthropology, Business, Cinema, Economics, History, Law, Political Science, and Sociology.

If a FLAC course is developed and taught by a graduate student, the student may receive up to 50% of the funding during the summer prior to teaching for development, and the remaining funds during the semester in which the FLAC course is taught, or the full amount may be paid during the semester the FLAC course is taught. If the FLAC course is developed and taught by a faculty member, the FLAC is normally taught as an overload, and the stipend is paid as a lump sum the following summer.
