This award for University of Chicago graduate students is up to $4,000 and supports pre-dissertation research in Chinese studies.  Typically, funds are used to finance pre-dissertation research in the target country. The funds are intended to enable University of Chicago graduate students to lay the foundations for their research plans (for example, to survey holdings in archives, or to identify and meet with scholars and advisers with whom a student plans to work in Asia).

Normally, a student is eligible for this grant only once during his/her/their graduate school career.  CEAS will consider making an exception for second applications on a case-by-case basis.

Allowable expenses include economy airfare, local travel, accommodations, meals and up to $500 for research materials.
