Kathryn Davis Fellowships for Peace
These fellowships offer students the opportunity to take advantage of the combined language and international study resources of the Monterey Institute and Middlebury Language Schools.
In the seventh year of this program, these fellowships are made possible by a $1 million gift from Kathryn Davis to address today’s critical need for more effective language proficiency. The award is to attend the Middlebury summer Language Schools in Middlebury, Vermont. Fellowship recipients will study Arabic, Chinese, Japanese or Russian through the Language Schools’ signature immersion model: "No English Spoken Here." This intense study, equivalent to a full year of college-level language learning, will allow students to enhance language skills to meet enrollment prerequisites at the Monterey Institute for fall 2013.
With this unusual offer of combined study, the Monterey Institute seeks individuals committed to rigorous language study, master’s-degree training, and professional skill development to address global issues of development, fair trade, international commerce, environmental preservation, nuclear nonproliferation, and other critical issues of our time. “Fellowships for Peace” recipients will be chosen on the basis of academic credentials, experience, and commitment to building a more peaceful world.
