The East Asia Library at Stanford University is now accepting applications for its 2017-18 library travel grants. The purpose of these grants is to assist scholars from outside the greater San Francisco Bay Area in accessing the Stanford East Asia Library collections for research. Funded by the Department of Education Title VI program, the Stanford Center for East Asian Studies will award up to ten grants on a competitive basis to help defray the cost of travel and lodging for scholars of East Asia at other institutions who wish to utilize the collections at the Stanford East Asia Library.
Scholars (faculty and advanced graduate students) of East Asia at other U.S. institutions who wish to utilize the collection at the Stanford East Asia Library between August 15, 2017 and July 15, 2018. Priority consideration will be given to those at institutions where there are no or few library resources in the East Asian languages, and no major East Asian library collections are available nearby. Please note that award travel must be completed and receipts submitted for reimbursement before July 15, 2018. Applicants do not have to be US citizens, but they must be affiliated with a U.S. institution and travel should originate and terminate in the US; no international tickets are allowed.
Up to $750 per trip.
