Start Now: Apply for The 2012 Language Flagship Fellowships! Deadline is January 12, 2012

The Language Flagship represents a major partnership between the National Security Education Program (NSEP) and select U.S. colleges and universities to develop intensive, advanced level language curricula in a number of languages critical to U.S. national security. At present, Language Flagship graduate programs have been established in Arabic, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, and Persian.

Each year, NSEP awards a limited number of Flagship Fellowships to American students from a diverse array of fields and disciplines, who demonstrate a strong commitment to language study, who have already achieved an advanced level of proficiency in the language, and who wish to reach professional working proficiency in that language (ILR Level 3 or ACTFL “Superior” level).

Administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE), Flagship Fellowships provide financial support for full-time study of the language in a Master’s degree granting Flagship program. Flagship Fellowship recipients must maintain enrollment in a graduate Flagship program for the duration of the award period. In return, Flagship Fellows are expected to fulfill a requirement for service in a national security-related position in the U.S. federal government.

Please find the 2012 Flagship Fellowships online application at We ask that you please share this information with eligible students who may be interested in this opportunity.

The Flagship Fellowship application deadline is January 12, 2012. All online components must be completed and all original supplementary materials must be received by the Institute of International Education by January 12, 2012. Materials sent by fax or email will not be accepted.
