Da Jia Hao , 

Some of you may remember me from the dumpling party last Sunday. A few of you were interested in scholarship information, so here you go.

NSEP (National Security Education Program) -- programs for study of security critical languages overseas. Support offered for undergrad, grad, and non-students who have completed an undergraduate degree. The catch is that you owe government service in the same amount of time for which you received support. I received 20 months worth of support, so I owed 20 months of government service (i.e. a paid federal gov job or an unpaid internship). I won two of the graduate fellowships for study in China and Taiwan/Indonesia so it's doable -- just write an interesting proposal.


Blakemore -- programs for the study of East Asian and Southeast Asian languages abroad. Here's the eligibility:

"*Be pursuing an academic, professional or business career that involves   the regular use of a modern East or Southeast Asian language 
 *Have a college undergraduate degree 
 *Be at or near an advanced level in the language as defined below 
 *Be able to devote oneself exclusively to language study during the term  of the grant; grants are not made for part-time study 
 *Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United States 

"Professional or business career" includes, but is not limited to, careers in computer science, engineering, international business, journalism, law, medicine, NGO work, and teaching."

I met someone who won one of these and she said the secret is to support why you need the language for your current/future career. 


Have a great day everyone.
