External Funding Sources for Academic Year Funding
The Blakemore Foundation makes between 20 and 40 grants available each year for advanced language study of modern Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Southeast Asian languages during the academic year.
Graduate students may apply for scholarships of $2,000 available from the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) for summer language study at one of the participating universities. This program is intended to help students take advantage of language offerings not available at their own university, but available at another CIC member university.
The United States-Indonesia Society (USINDO) awards one grant of $1,500 to a University of Michigan graduate student for travel to Indonesia to undertake a study-related project. Suggested projects include language study, summer internships, participation in a conference, enrollment in an Indonesian university, or independent research.
This program consists of one month of intensive beginning Indonesian language instruction followed by one month of studies in Indonesian history, culture, and contemporary affairs in Yogyakarta, Central Java. Fifteen students in the U.S. are selected through competition to participate in this all-expenses-paid program at Gadjah Mada University in June and July.
