Taiwan Studies Lectureship Graduate Fellowships & Faculty Travel Grants

Funding for Research in Taiwan

 

Eligibility:

According to guidelines established by the funding agency, students who are citizens of Taiwan, Hong Kong, or the People’s Republic of China are not eligible to apply unless they also hold US citizenship or have permanent resident status (Green Card). Green Card holders should consult foreign travel guidelines to ensure that they do not inadvertently abandon their permanent resident status due to extended travel outside the US.

 

Faculty Travel Grants

The UCLA Asia Pacific Center will offer short-term travel grants of up to $2000 to UCLA faculty for research or academic collaborations in Taiwan. Faculty from any discipline may apply, but research must incorporate topics or methodologies of the humanities, social or behavioral sciences. Applications will be accepted quarterly, and should be submitted to the UCLA Asia Pacific Center via the online application. The application should include a brief proposal including purpose and dates of the visit, collaborating institutions and scholars in Taiwan, and an estimated budget.

 

Deadlines for 2017–2018

Applications for both awards will be accepted on a rolling basis, with quarterly deadlines for review. Activities funded by the program must be completed within twelve months of receiving the award.
