The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies: Predissertation-Summer Travel Grants

Loading...

The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies seeks to maintain the vitality of China Studies in the US through fellowships and grants designed primarily for scholars early in their careers.

Predissertation travel grants provide funding for graduate students to explore venues and make preliminary research arrangements, and to gain advice from potential collaborators regarding subsequent research in China.

This program is made possible by a generous grant from The Henry Luce Foundation.
