Chinese Language Fellowship Program (CLFP)
, from the National Bureau of Asian Research,
is a nationwide initiative designed to support American PhD students with a fellowship of up to $45,000 so that they can devote one year to intensive Chinese language training at an institution of the fellow's choice, generally in China or Taiwan.
The fellowship is designed to cover all tuition and other registration/visa fees related to a student’s intensive Chinese language program, as well as to provide a generous stipend to cover living and travel costs. NBR’s program team will work with the fellowship recipients as they apply to their chosen language programs and will disburse awards in May–June 2020, with an expectation that awardees will travel to Asia during the mid- to late-summer in order to begin classes in September 2020.
Applications for the 2020–21 academic year are now open. The deadline for applications is January 20, 2020.
