Blakemore Freeman Fellowships for Advanced Study of Asian Languages1

Description

Blakemore Freeman Fellowships are intended to cover basic expenses at a graduate student level necessary to pursue an academic year of full-time intensive language study in Asia, including tuition or tutoring fees, plus a stipend for travel, living and study expenses. Tuition for the language program, and tutoring fees (if applicable) are covered in full. Blakemore Freeman Fellowships are awarded for one academic year of full-time, intensive language study of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Khmer or Burmese at the advanced level in approved language programs in East or Southeast Asia. Grants are highly competitive. In recent years we have been able to fund less than 10% of applicants. Superior candidates pursuing careers in fields such as academia, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), international business, accounting, law, medicine, journalism, architecture, teaching, social or NGO work, and government service are encouraged to apply. For program updates, follow the fellowship webpage. (http://www.blakemorefoundation.org/language.html)
