Blakemore Freeman Fellowships for Advanced Asian Language Study

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 that are pursuing careers which 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.
