The Blakemore Foundation offers grants for advanced (i.e., non-beginner) Asian language study to American citizens and permanent residents of the United States who have a college degree and plan to use an Asian language in their career. Grants can be made for one year (Freeman Fellowships) or for less than one year (refresher grants). For more information, see the Foundation's web site here. I am posting about these grants here because they are ideal for lawyers who already have some Chinese, but just need that little extra boost to get them to the level at which they can work comfortably in a Chinese-language environment, and that kind of candidate would be very competitive.
