The Blakemore Freeman Fellowships are fully funded, academic-year advanced language study abroad programs for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and selected Southeast Asian languages. An applicant must have (at minimum) a bachelor’s degree and have completed at least three years of study of the language at the college level by the start of the grant. BYU students should be competitive.
For more information, go to www.blakemorefoundation.org.
The fellowship will help fund a proposal designed by the applicant to conduct brief work in a foreign country related to the mandate of UNESCO—using education, natural sciences, social and human sciences, culture, and/or communication and information to build strong ties among nations. The fellowship is intended for American college/university students who express an interest in international collaboration but as of yet had not been afforded many opportunities to travel abroad.
The length of time for the travel is expected to be between four and six weeks and should include interaction with individuals from other nations. During his/her travel, the recipient should be willing to participate in public diplomacy events arranged with the pertinent U.S. State Department Consulate, Mission, and/or Embassy.
Following the travel, the recipient agrees to submit a report describing experiences and analyzing objectives achieved; share his/her experiences with others; and be available to make a presentation to the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO. Learn more . . .
