Kudos to Jorge Wong who was awarded a $15,000 FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) fellowship by the Center for European Studies! It was awarded to Jorge on the merit of his proposal to study Serbo-Croatian and to analyze inhereted Indo-European values, structures and formulae in the guslar poetry and other epic poetry of the former Yugoslavia. A comparative study of this poetry and Homeric poetry, including the Homeric Hymns will most likely yield Jorge's senior thesis.
Jorge encourages all foreign language students to explore this fellowship opportunity which is listed on the CoLa Centers for European Studies webpage. He points out that the FLAS supports the study of non-European languages, as well.
