The Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Kansas, a federally designated National Resource Center, offers travel grants to scholars from outside the Lawrence, Kansas area who wish to use the University's East Asian Library collection during 2016/2017 academic years. Travel grants of up to $350 each will be awarded to cover travel and lodging expenses. Applicants at institutions where there are few or no East Asian language library resources will be given priority consideration. The 2016-2017 awards must be used before August 1, 2017. Applications will be reviewed by the travel grant committee and grants will be awarded to faculty members and graduate students engaged in dissertation research. The grants will be awarded on the basis of merit.
The East Asian collection has over 330,000 volumes in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, substantial periodical holdings, and electronic resources. The collection is especially strong in the fields of Chinese and Japanese art history, history, literature, religion, and Japanese women's studies. For further information about the collection, please visit https://lib.ku.edu/east-asian-collection/about or contact Vickie Doll, Head of the East Asian Collection, at email@example.com.
Applications are accepted at any time during the year. Grant applications include a one page description of the research topic, the type/subject of materials (or in a list of databases and book titles) you are seeking, an estimated budget, and a current curriculum vitae. Send the application materials to Travel Grants Committee c/o firstname.lastname@example.org.
