The Triangle Center for Japanese Studies, newly established with assistance from the Japan Foundation, has grants available for scholars who wish to visit the Japanese studies collection in the Duke University library, the Japanese materials in the Ackland Museum of Art at UNC Chapel Hill, the Gregg Museum of Art and Design at North Carolina State University, or another Japan-related resource in the Triangle region. Although these awards are primarily intended for scholars from universities in the southeast who lack regular access to such collections, applications from all interested scholars will be considered. For more information about this award or the Triangle Center for Japanese Studies, please see the TCJS website:
The following opportunities are available:
- Travel Grants for Japanese Studies Visitors to the Triangle (to conduct research). These grants are not to bring speakers, but to encourage faculty at schools with less resources, particularly in the southeastern U.S., to visit the Triangle to use Duke’s Japanese studies library materials or the Japanese materials in our university museums.
- Research Travel Grants open to faculty and graduate students from Duke, NCSU, and UNC; they provide funding for travel to and accommodation in Japan.
- Cross-Institutional Study Groups. Proposals are invited from Duke, NCSU, and/or UNC faculty or graduate students on Japan-related topics. Study groups should include members from at least two participating institutions. The maximum number of proposals on which a faculty member may co-sign is two.
