Two ICLRS Student Research Fellows Receive Foreign Language Study Grants

The Center congratulates 2010 Student Research Fellows Rebecca Nelson Skabelund and Jordan Teuscher, who were among the four students from the J. Reuben Clark Law School and 37 students campus-wide to receive Foreign Language Area Studies (FLAS) grants for the 2010-2011 academic year. Each grant covers tuition and a stipend for the year, while providing students an opportunity to improve their language skills. Jordan speaks Ukrainian and some Russian and French and served his ICLRS summer research externship in Ukraine. He has chosen Romanian for his language of study. Rebecca speaks Spanish and has an undergraduate minor in Arabic. She spent her summer 2010 externship in Lima, Peru, and she chose Turkish for her grant study language.
