The Harvard-Yenching Library has announced its Travel Grant Program for the 2010 – 2011 academic year. The purpose of the grant is to assist scholars from outside the metropolitan Boston area in their use of the Harvard-Yenching Libraryâ€™s collections for research.
There will be twenty-one grants of $400 each (seven in Chinese studies, nine 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. The awards must be used before August 1, 2011.
Applications for the travel grant, including a letter, a brief description of the research topic, and an estimated budget, should be addressed to:
