The East Asian Studies Program is pleased that we are now able to resume awarding grants to both undergraduate and graduate students for summer and fall travel for training or research

A grant for international research or training can provide up to $2,000 while a grant for domestic research or training can provide up to $700. Priority will be given to first-time applicants. Recipients of research grants will present their findings at a student symposium next academic year.

For international travel, undergraduate students must also apply for approval from the Global Education Office and meet with one of their advisers as part of the approval process. For more information please visit the Global Education Office website or write [email protected].

You may apply for both the Ho Family Summer Study Abroad program and the East Asian Studies Research/Training Grant, but you may only accept funding from one or the other.

Application Process

Students apply online. All applicants must submit a proposal, a copy of their unofficial transcripts, and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. For research grants, the letter should be from the faculty member that will be mentoring the research project. Letters should be sent directly to [email protected].
