2014 Summer Language/Research Fellowships

Fellowships for summer language or research study for new and continuing UCLA Ph.D. students

The fellowship awards, which will be based on merit and need, may be used for intensive summer language programs of known quality, or to support well-designed summer field research in China or Taiwan. Priority consideration will be given to applications for summer language studies. Applicants must be graduate students in good standing in Ph.D. programs in Chinese studies at UCLA. Awards for Chinese language study will normally be only for the intermediate levels or above. Advanced students who have attained fluency in Chinese may apply for support to begin or continue the study of a second language (e.g., Japanese).

Applications need to be dropped off at the Center for Chinese Studies office by 5pm on April 28, 2014

The application packet must include:
• Plans and justification for summer study
• A budget of expenses
• A statement of purpose, including a review of progress made toward the Ph.D. degree and plans for further study and/or research
• Up-to-date unofficial transcript
• One letter of recommendation from faculty

Award recipients will be contacted in mid-May.


The online application tool will ask you to register; you may then fill out and submit an application.

You may review and revise your application anytime before the deadline (April 28, 2014).
