Since 1990, the Blakemore Foundation has awarded over $20 million in grants to graduating seniors, college graduates, graduate students and young/mid-career professionals to fund an academic year of advanced language study in East and Southeast Asia.
Superior candidates pursuing careers which will involve the regular use of an East or Southeast Asian language, in fields such as academia, STEM, international business, accounting, law, medicine, journalism, architecture, teaching, social and NGO work, and government service, are encouraged to apply.
For Chinese, the fellowship funds study at the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, or the International Chinese Language Program at National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan. The Blakemore Foundation does not award fellowships for any other Chinese language program.
The application deadline is 12/30/2020.
