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 www.flagshipfellowships.org. We ask that you please share this information with eligible students who may be interested in this opportunity.
