The grants assist schol­ars from out­side the Boston met­ro­pol­i­tan area in using the Har­vard-Yench­ing Library’s col­lec­tions for research. Of nine­teen $500 grants five will be award­ed in Kore­an stud­ies. The grants are award­ed on a mer­it basis to fac­ul­ty mem­bers and 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 near­by. Each grantee also will be pro­vid­ed free pho­to­copy­ing up to 100 sheets.
