Blakemore Freeman Fellowships are awarded for one academic year of full-time, intensive language study at the advanced level in East or Southeast Asia in approved language programs. For grants to be awarded in 2016, study must start between June 2016 and May 2017.

Tuition for the language program, and tutoring fees (if applicable) are covered in full.
Eligible languages include Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Khmer, and Burmese.
