Faculty Development Grants


The East Asia Center makes available to all East Asia-related faculty holding long-term paid appointments “Faculty Development Grants.”  The grant is designed to provide  supplemental funds of up to $500 per application to help defray the costs associated with: participating in East Asia-related workshops and conferences both in the U.S. and abroad by presenting or commenting on papers; research-related activities such as materials acquisition, transcription, and translation; and costs associated with the  editing and publication of a manuscript (subventions).

Applicants need to have applied for other applicable funding, such as departmental travel funds, in order to be eligible for this award. A separate application is required.  

Recipients must agree to share with the East Asia Center community knowledge and experiences acquired through reports, short presentations, etc.

(For large publication projects please apply for a publication grant by using the same form; a publication grant can range from $1,000-$2,000, depending on the needs. For workshop and conference funding requests, ranging between $1,000-$5,000, please write to the Director and the Grants Committee any time.)
