Because we are committed to supporting and working closely with our graduate students, we are able to accept only a limited number (2-3 students per year) of the many excellent applications we receive each year. The CLFS' admission form also serves as an application for fellowships and Teaching Assistantships. The deadline for all completed applications (and for fellowship consideration) for the fall semester is December 15.
