National Bureau of Asian Research Chinese Language Fellowship Program
To better understand China and formulate effective policy, the United States needs to train a new generation of political scientists who possess deep understanding of China’s contemporary politics, society, and modern history, as well as fluency in Chinese language. These specialists are essential to inform U.S. public policy and to train successive generations of American experts.
The Chinese Language Fellowship Program (CLFP) addresses these needs by providing fellowships of up to $45,000 to American PhD students in political science so that they can devote one year to intensive Chinese language training at an institution of the fellow’s choice, generally in China or Taiwan. The fellowship is intended to cover all expenses at a graduate student level, including tuition, housing living stipend, and other miscellaneous fees.
The Chinese Language Fellowship Program has been made possible through a generous grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York
