Since 1990, the Foundation has awarded over $14 million in language grants to individuals using an East or Southeast Asian language in their careers. The Blakemore Freeman Fellowships fund an academic year of advanced language study abroad of Chinese, Japanese, Korean and selected Southeast Asian languages.
Blakemore Refresher Grants are short-term grants intended to provide mid-career professionals an opportunity to refresh their language skills. They are available to former Blakemore Freeman Fellows, professors teaching in an Asian field at a university or college in the United States and professionals working in an Asian field.
