IDEAS Graduate Fellowships in East Asian Studies, 2012/13 USA

The Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS) announces its 2012-2013 fellowship competition for continuing graduate students in East Asian Studies. Subject to availability of funding, a small number of competitive awards of up to $6,000 (maximum) are available. We expect most awards, however, will be in the $1,500-$3,500 range. Successful applicants should propose a coherent plan of research/study that will result in tangible progress towards their graduate degree. IEAS fellowships are intended to facilitate special research proposals and study plans, and are not intended for general support.

1.IEAS will consider applications from students whose research goes beyond the boundaries of one country or region. Regions may include China, Japan, Korea, and their neighbors in Northeast Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, or beyond. Students whose work focuses on only a single country should apply to the appropriate Center. Single-country applications received by IEAS may be referred to the Center for Chinese, Japanese, or Korean Studies. 2.IEAS will accept applications for most academic purposes including pre-dissertation research or study, dissertation research, dissertation write-up awards, and summer language study. In all cases, a specific plan of research/study must be proposed, along with a statement of expected outcome. Awardees will be required to file a brief final report to IEAS at the end of the award period. 3.IEAS strongly encourages applicants to apply for funding from other campus and extramural sources and to apply to IEAS for the additional funding that may still be needed for the project or study period. IEAS awards are insufficient to cover a full year of funding for any applicant.

Scholarship Deadline: April 2, 2012
