The Kathryn Davis Fellowships for Peace cover the costs of tuition, room, and board for a summer of summer language study from beginner to graduate levels in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Portuguese, and Russian at the Middlebury College Language Schools.
The Davis Fellowships are merit-based and intended for exceptionally qualified individuals with demonstrated interest in one or more of the following areas:  international, global, or area studies; international politics and economics; peace and security studies; and/or conflict resolution.  Individuals in other fields, including working professionals, are encouraged to apply if their field of expertise requires them to study one of the critical languages listed above.
The Kathryn Davis Fellowships are competitive, merit-based awards.  Financial aid forms are not required for the Davis awards, but students are encouraged to apply for regular Middlebury College financial aid (awarded on a demonstrated-need basis), through the office of financial aid.
Note:  To be considered for the Davis Fellowship, you must have a complete Language School application on file.   The Language Schools application includes a non-refundable processing fee of $65.
