Freeman Foundation International Fellowship Grant
Freeman Foundation Fellowship Grant Application
The Freeman Foundation was established in 1994 through the
bequest and in memory of the businessman and benefactor Mansfield Freeman, a
co-founder of the international insurance and financial conglomerate American
International Group, Inc., better known as AIG. This private and
philanthropic foundation is dedicated to augmenting international understanding
between the United States and the nations of East Asia.
Elliott School strongly encourages students to integrate their course of study
with practical international internship experiences. Accordingly,
Graduate Student Career Development (GSCD) offers a limited number of
competitive fellowship grants for currently enrolled Elliott School graduate
students participating in international internships in East Asia and/or
Southeast Asia and around the world. Be sure to also look into theInternational Internship Grantand ourResource page.
The purpose of
these grants is to help defray the costs of the international fellowship
internship, not to fully fund the experience. Students are strongly
encouraged to begin researching outside sources of funding before submitting a
maximum of $6,550 will be available for each fellowship grant. The final amount
for each grant will be determined by funds available to GSCD and the budget
submitted with each application. Applications for amounts less than
$6,550 are not more likely to succeed. We strongly encourage well
researched requests that may exceed the $6,550 grant limit.
