The Mellon Fellows Program

The Institute of Advanced Studies Mellon Fellows Program, administered
by the National Foreign Language Center, awards fellowships to a wide
range of professionals working in the fields of academia, government,
policy making institutions, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
Their proposals for projects have covered an equally wide gamut of
topics, but preference has been given to proposals which reflect the
agenda of the National Foreign Language Center.

The National Foreign Language Center (NFLC) at the Johns Hopkins
University is an independent policy and research institution dedicated
to the formulation and dissemination of public policy relating to
national language needs and capacity. At the core of the Center's
current efforts is a variety of topics that relate to broad policy
concerns, including: national planning and language policy for
expanding foreign/second language capacity; the identification of
national language needs and objectives; research to determine current
capacity in various languages; language instruction and language
acquisition, curriculum development, and language assessment of
individuals and programs; technological supprt of language learning;
and ethnic language maintenance and enhancement. The Mellon
Foundation is particularly interested in soliciting proposals for
research on classroom teaching and learning.

Proposals for next year's fellowships must be postmarked by January 2,
1996. For more information about the Mellon Fellows Program and/or to
