The Harvard-Yenching Library is pleased to announce its Travel Grant Program for the 2017-2018 academic year. The purpose of the grant is to assist scholars from outside the Boston metropolitan area in their use of the Harvard-Yenching Library’s collections for research. There will be nineteen grants of $600 each (seven in Chinese studies, seven in Japanese studies, and five in Korean studies) to be awarded on a merit basis to faculty members and to graduate students engaged in dissertation research. Priority consideration will be given to those at institutions where there are no or few library resources in the East Asian languages and no major East Asian library collections are available nearby. Please note that the awards must be used by September 30, 2018.
Applications for the travel grant, including a letter with your mailing address, a brief description of the research topic, and an estimated budget should be addressed to the following. You can send in your application either in paper form or as an email attachment.
The deadline for receiving applications is extended to February 15, 2018.
Note: Independent scholars and all levels of graduate students are also welcome to apply.
