Scholarships and Funding

Flagship Scholarships

Persian Flagship students are eligible to receive need-based funding when it is most necessary – to support intensive domestic summer study at an approved institution (such as the University of Maryland Summer Language Institute), and for the domestic Capstone year.

In order to apply for funding through the Flagship Program, students must  demonstrate that they have actively pursued other scholarship opportunities. Each student has a lifetime maximum of $20,000 that they are eligible to receive from The Language Flagship Program.


The Flagship Program works closely with the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures (SLLC), the Office of Student Financial Aid, and the National Scholarships Office on campus to help students research scholarships and create outstanding applications.

Students meet with the Persian Flagship Staff on a regular basis to discuss their financial planning for study abroad and scholarship options.

For assistance applying to these and other national scholarships, visit the National Scholarships office at 2403 Marie Mount Hall.
