The Harvard-Yenching Library is pleased to announce its Travel Grant Program for the 2007-2008 academic year. The purpose of the grant is to assist scholars from outside the metropolitan Boston area in their use of the Harvard-Yenching Library's collections for research. There will be seventeen grants of $400 each (six in Chinese studies, six in Japanese studies, and five in Korean studies) to be awarded on a merit basis to faculty members and to graduate students engaged in dissertation research.
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. Each grantee will also be provided with the privilege of free photocopying of up to 100 sheets.
Please note that the awards must be used before August 1, 2008. Recipients are usually notified by early January.
The grants are open to citizens of any country. However, because the program is supported by funds from a Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education, all travel to and from the library must be via U.S. carriers.
Applications for the travel grant for the 2007-08 academic year must be received by Monday, December 31, 2007. Applications should include a letter, a brief description of the research topic, and an estimated budget, and should be addressed to:
James K. M. Cheng
