The Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies (CEAPS) and the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Programme (WGGP) are pleased to announce a call for applications for the Illinois Global Institute (IGI) Language Fellowship 2023-2024.

This fellowship provides support for critical language training necessary to fields of academic and professional development for UIUC graduate students. The fellowship offers academic year support (AY 2023-2024) to graduate students at the MA or PhD level. As cultural and language training go hand in hand, fellows will be required to take one language course and one relevant area studies course each semester that they hold a fellowship. Additional requirements may be listed in awards letters. Academic advisors at each center will assist fellows in selecting the appropriate language and area studies courses.
