Description:

The Parker Huang Undergraduate Travel Fellowship helps to support a year of study, research, or work abroad. These fellowships are made possible by a generous gift from an alumnus honoring Parker Po-fei Huang, a distinguished teacher of Chinese at Yale who retired in 1985. The Parker Huang Fellowships are "being given not because of American successes abroad, but because of our failures and because the international failures of the most powerful country on earth are costly for those who are most powerless."

The Fellowships are awarded each year to students who plan to study or work in non-English-speaking countries. First preference is given to proposals for projects in China; thereafter, elsewhere in Asia, Africa or other regions (such as Central Asia, the Caucasus, Eastern Europe, Russia, Latin America, or the Middle East). The awards are intended to support either advanced language study beyond the intermediate level (begun at Yale or elsewhere) or study/work/research (in the language of the host country) focusing on socio-cultural issues in the host country. Proposals may include either university study, independent projects, or an unpaid or low-paying work experience.

Criteria for selection include the validity and feasibility of the proposed project or program of study and the candidate's seriousness of purpose and academic and other preparation, especially proficiency in the language of the host country sufficient to undertake the proposed project or study.

In countries where English is one of the official languages or main languages spoken, the candidate must have an intermediate level of knowledge of one of the country's non-English languages at the time of application.

Duration: 9 - 12 months. Projects of shorter duration will not be considered. The proposed project must be a full-time commitment and be the primary activity for the duration of the fellowship.


This fellowship is administered by the Yale Center for International and Professional Experience, Fellowship Programs.
