CFA: Kathryn Davis Fellowships for Peace: Investing in the Study of Critical Languages

Deadline: January 14, 2014

Middlebury College is pleased to announce The Kathryn Davis Fellowships for Peace: Investing in the Study of Critical Languages. These 100 fellowships are made possible by a generous gift from Kathryn Davis, to address today's critical need for increased language proficiency in the United States.

The Kathryn Davis Fellowships cover 100% of tuition, room, and board for one summer of summer language study from beginner to graduate levels in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Portuguese, and Russian at the Middlebury College Language Schools

The Davis Fellowships are merit-based and intended for exceptionally qualified individuals with demonstrated interest in one or more of the following areas: international, global, or area studies; international politics and economics; peace and security studies; and/or conflict resolution. Individuals in other fields, including working professionals, are encouraged to apply if their field of expertise requires them to study one of the critical languages listed above.

The Kathryn Davis Fellowships are competitive, merit-based awards. Financial aid forms are not required for the Davis awards, but students are encouraged to apply for regular Middlebury College financial aid (awarded on a demonstrated-need basis), through the office of financial aid.

To be considered for the Davis Fellowship, you must have a complete Language School application on file. Note that the Language Schools application includes a non-refundable processing fee of $65.

Applications for the Kathryn Davis Fellowship must be postmarked by January 14, 2014. If you live in an area requiring a long mail time (e.g., in a foreign country or remote area), please contact your Language Schools Coordinator to discuss mailing options.

To be considered for a Davis Fellowship, please submit:

1. A complete application for admission to an eligible Language School, including letters of recommendation and all other supporting materials. If you have already submitted a complete application, you do not need to resubmit it.

2. Two copies of the Davis coversheet;

4. Two copies of a resumé or curriculum vitae.
