The Center for East Asian Studies’ Japan, China and Korean Studies Library Travel Grants are designed to assist scholars from outside the Chicago metropolitan area in their use of University of Chicago’s East Asian collections for research related to Japan, China and Korea. Priority consideration is 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. Normally, an applicant is eligible to receive one award per academic year.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, there are a limited number of grants of $500 each, to be awarded on a merit basis to faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars engaged in research.
The grant takes the form of a reimbursement for actual travel expenses. Original receipts must be submitted along with a reimbursement form obtained from the Center for East Asian Studies.
Grant funds may be used for:
Domestic travel to and from the University of Chicago library (including mileage) Copies of pertinent archival resources Local accommodations
