Faculty Development Grants

Application Deadlines: October 15th (Fall) and March 1st (Spring)

“Faculty Development Grants," designed to provide supplemental funds of up to $500 per application to help cover 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 manuscripts, are made available by The East Asia Center to all East Asia-related faculty holding long-term paid appointments.  

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.  

(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 at any time.)

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

Recipients must agree to provide service (such as serving on committees) to the Center when called upon to do so; failing to do so may jeopardize future access to Center grants.
