Kathryn Davis Fellowships for Peace

Full Scholarships for Intensive Language Study at the Middlebury Summer Language Schools in: Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian

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.

For the third year in a row, 100 Davis Fellowships are offered to cover the full cost of summer language study from beginner to graduate levels in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Portuguese, and Russian at the Middlebury College Language Schools. Fellowship grants cover the full comprehensive fee (tuition, room, and board) at the Middlebury summer Language Schools, plus a stipend to assist in defraying program-related expenses.

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 also encouraged to apply if their field of expertise requires them to study one of the critical languages listed above.

In order to apply for a Davis Fellowship, you must have completed an application to a Language School. Language School applications can be found here.

Additional Davis Fellowship opportunities are available through Middlebury's affiliate, the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California.
