Here’s a brief list of some of the Awards:
- FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship) Awards (Note: includes both summer and academic year fellowships ) — For students concentrating in modern foreign language (in this case: Chinese, Tibetan, Japanese or Korean) and a program that includes international or area studies.
- Irwin S. Penn Memorial Scholarship — Travel funding to China for University of Virginia Graduate Students (any discipline) for the purpose of language study or dissertation research.
- Ellen Bayard Weedon Travel Grants — Funds granted are to be used towards the cost of round-trip air fare between Charlottesville and East Asia. Travel within an Asian country will not be covered by the grant.
- Founders Student Travel Grant — The Founders Travel Grant is a special honor to a student planning language work in East Asia, and it supplements the available Weedon travel grants.
