The Department of Education has awarded $3.6 million over four years to the 
UCLA International Institute's centers and programs to support language 
learning by graduate students. Together, four academic units at the Institute 
received $900,000 in U.S. Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships 
for a twelve-month period beginning in Fall 2006 along with commitments for 
equivalent amounts for the succeeding three years, subject to annual 
congressional approval of the Department of Education Title VI budget. This 
year's decisions by the department affect the academic-year and summer 
sessions of 2006-10. The awards went to UCLA centers in Latin American, Near 
Eastern, and Southeast Asian studies and to the East Asian studies program of 
the Asia Institute.
