The Harvard-Yenching Library has announced its Travel Grant Program for the 2014 – 2015 academic year. 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.
Applications for the travel grant, including a letter, a brief description of the research topic, and an estimated budget, should be addressed to James K.M. Cheng, Librarian, Harvard-Yenching Library, Harvard University, 2 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138. Fax: (617) 496‑6008. E-mail: email@example.com. Applications must be received by December 22, 2014. Awards must be used by August 31, 2015.
