The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce a new program of fellowships and grants in China Studies.
For more information on the Luce/ACLS Program on China Studies, and information on how to apply, please see http://www.acls.org/programs/china-studies/. Inquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications for the first competition is November 15, 2012.
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. To address this situation, the program will offer three competitions:
1. Pre-dissertation Grants for Research in China, enabling young scholars to gain familiarity with work underway in archives and field sites in China and to establish formal and informal relations with Chinese institutions and colleagues;
2. Postdoctoral Fellowships, supporting scholars in preparing their Ph.D. dissertation research for publication or in embarking on new research projects; and
3. Collaborative Reading-Workshop Grants, providing opportunities for scholars of different disciplines to share in-depth investigation of texts that are essential points of entry to Chinese periods, traditions, communities, or events in contemporary or historical times.
Applications in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences are welcome.
This program is made possible by funding from the Henry Luce Foundation.
