Blakemore Freeman Fellowship 2020-2021

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!!!

I want to begin this topic for this cycle...

I have applied for the Blakemore Freeman Fellowship to apply to ICLP in Taiwan. I have been nervously awaiting March for THE e-mail. 

Any other applicants? 🙂

Hey there! I applied for IUP at Tsinghua, still waiting to hear back.

Hey I got accepted and totally bombed my language interview. You should do fine. They accept HSK-1.

Hey!! It's nice to see some other folks in the thread!
All the best to you as you wait to hear back from IUP! I am waiting to hear back from Blakemore as I'd prefer to know before I spent $100 for the ICLP Taiwan application fee. 

I know by early to mid-March we should hear back about interviews/making it to the interview part for Blakemore.

Unfortunately rejected from Blakemore after spending $80 on my application to IUC-Yokohama. I may have felt too hopeful, having already done Boren and CLS, so it was quite disappointing, but life goes on. Gotta try again next year!

I am sorry to read this. This is my second time applying and was in your shoes the first time. At the time, I had also been a CLS and Boren alum. I'm glad that your attitude is that you'll try again next year! Definitely do that. 🙂

I had my interview with the Blakemore committee for Chinese today! I wonder when they'll get back to us.

I had mine on Friday!!! 
i know that before the interview, an email said that we will know by the end of March. That said, someone that did an interview for Japanese on an earlier day got his completed and was notified as a recipient the next day! 

There is a Blakemore slack group. Are you in it? If not send me your email and I will add you!

Anyone have any information to share about this? Perhaps someone who has won it and has finished their award?

I messaged the above user about the slack group, but no response yet.

Did this year's program even occur? Like were winners told they can do it next year/when travel restrictions end?

I can answer to these! Fellowship funding is being dispensed as usual. The language programs are so far being offered online (at least I know that's true for Chinese). They hope to transition back to in-person instruction when travel restrictions are removed.
