The CEAS Professional Training Grant in East Asian Studies funds participation in formal programs, organized courses, and workshops that offer training in specific skills that are essential to the student’s dissertation/thesis research or their professional profile and not available at the University of Chicago. The grant is normally awarded for advanced language training (3rd year and beyond; modern and classical/literary) and/or pedagogy. The Committee will also consider grant applications for workshops and courses that focus on specific skill-building that is crucial to a student’s overall course of study and professional development. Students must research, select, and apply directly to the class or program they feel best fits their research needs. Normally for language study, applicants must have been enrolled in language courses at UChicago during the preceding year, or they must explain the extenuating circumstances. Students must also demonstrate due diligence in seeking both internal UChicago and external funding opportunities.

Fundable expenses include tuition, housing, and travel expenses (e.g., round trip economy class airfare, train passes, etc.).  Non-allowable expenses include meals, books, miscellaneous expenses, and other materials.
