Pre-dissertation Grant and Post Doctoral Fellowship Opportunities in China Studies

ACLS - LUCE Fellowship Opportunity

Applications are now available online for Pre-dissertation grants and Postdoctoral Fellowships in the second competition of the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies.

The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies seeks to maintain the vitality of China Studies in the U.S. through fellowships and grants designed primarily for scholars early in their careers. Studies on and in China have developed over the last 30 years in the United States into a robust field, but current conditions pose daunting problems, especially for scholars just before and just after the dissertation.

 Predissertation-Summer Grants, for graduate students who wish to conduct preliminary preparations in China prior to beginning basic research for the dissertation. The grants are for graduate students — with a Ph.D. prospectus in hand or developing one — to investigate the research currently underway in Chinese archives and field sites, to establish contact with Chinese scholars, and to secure necessary permissions for their own fieldwork or archival research;

 Postdoctoral Fellowships, for scholars who are revising their Ph.D. dissertations for publication or embarking on new research projects.

The deadline for applications is November 12, 2013.

To start your application register at ofa.acls.org/ or click the Online Fellowship Application tab on the program’s page.
