East Asian Archaeology & Early History
Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS grants to individuals
The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce a new program of grants to individuals in the archaeology and early history of East Asia. This program is undertaken in cooperation with the Henry Luce Foundation.
Research fellowships and training grants will be awarded for study of the peoples and cultures of early East Asia. Comparative projects and those that build scholarly networks are especially encouraged. Proposals may cover prehistoric or historical periods, but must focus on research or training that involves excavations and/or excavated materials.
For the purposes of this program, "East Asia" refers to northeast Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Macau, Mongolia, and Taiwan) and southeast Asia (Brunei, Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam).
ACLS grants to individuals are part of the comprehensive Luce Initiative on East Asian Archaeology and Early History that also includes a competition for invited institutions—universities and museums—administered by the Luce Foundation Asia Program.
Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS grants to individuals seek to
promote research, including the interpretation and analysis of sites, artifacts, and texts;
train the next generation of specialists;
foster cooperation among specialists in East Asia, the United States, and Canada; and
bring to wide public appreciation the results of recent discoveries and research.
General inquiries about the competition should be sent via e-mail to the ACLS office in New York at email@example.com.
Deadline: February 15, 2006
