New funding supports growth of Canadian Studies Program, Foreign Language and Area Studies

Two grants from the U.S. Department of Education International and Foreign Language Education office will allow the Canadian Studies Center at the University of Washington to award eight to 10 fellowships each year to students studying French or an Indigenous language spoken in Canada.

The center received nearly $2.5 million from a National Resource Center Grant with the Center for Canadian-American Studies at Western Washington University and a Foreign Language and Area Studies, or FLAS, grant.
