Every summer, the ACMS hosts an eight week Intensive Mongolian Language Program in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The purpose of this summer language program is to provide Intermediate-level students of the Mongolian language with an opportunity to enhance their communicative competence through systematic improvement of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, in an authentic environment.
The Language Program Fellowship provides stipends of up to $2000 to cover the cost of tuition. The fellowship is awarded to applicants based on merit and need. Applicants are encouraged to apply for funding from other sources in addition to the ACMS Intensive Mongolian Language Fellowship Program to support their studies. Demonstrations of other applications or receipt of other sources of support will be viewed favorably by the review committee, and Mongolian Language fellowships may be used to supplement other funding awards. The goal of the program is to assist as many people as possible to participate in language training to enhance their ability to conduct research in Mongolia.
All applicants who submit their applications in March will be considered for Language Program Fellowships. Applications received after this date will not be considered for fellowship awards.
