Blakemore Freeman Fellowships are awarded for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters) of advanced level language study in East or Southeast Asia. Eligible languages are Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Khmer, Thai, and Vietnamese. The Blakemore Foundation makes grants for study only at specific language programs. No grants are available for study in the United States. Blakemore Freeman Fellows must devote full-time to language study and not engage in any conflicting activities during the period covered by their grant. Part-time employment, teaching English, extensive research on a dissertation, or involvement in other projects which could hamper full-time study are not permitted. Recreational, educational, or cultural activities which do not interfere with full-time study are encouraged, particularly during school and holiday breaks. 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. The stipend for Blakemore Freeman Fellowships may be used for the following types of expenses: round-trip airfare; books and study materials related to the language program; housing/utilities/cell phone/internet access; food and ordinary daily living expenses; local commuting; travel within the country during holidays and school breaks; recreational, educational, or cultural activities; health insurance/medical evacuation insurance; immunizations appropriate for the country; visa application fees; and income taxes due on the taxable portion of the grant. 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.
