ACLS Announces New Funding for China Scholars
ACLS will award stipends for pre-dissertation research in China, grants for collaborative reading workshops that unite a number of disciplines and scholarly generations, and postdoctoral research fellowships for scholars within eight years of the receipt of the PhD. Round-one applications are due by November 15, 2012.
The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), the leading federation of humanist organizations, has announced several new grant opportunities for the study of Chinese literature, history, culture, and society. The new program is funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation in recognition of both the important scholarship emerging from China and the economic pressure on Asian Studies departments in academia.
