The Harvard-Yenching Library Travel Grants Program is intended to assist scholars from outside the Boston metropolitan area in their use of the Harvard-Yenching Library’s collections for research. For the 2015–2016 academic year, there will be nineteen grants of $600 each: five in Korean studies, seven in Chinese studies, and seven in Japanese studies. The grants are awarded on a merit basis to faculty members and to graduate students engaged in dissertation research. 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. Awards must be used by June 30, 2016.
Applications for a travel grant, including a letter, a brief description of the research topic, and an estimated budget, should be addressed: James K.M. Cheng, Librarian, Harvard-Yenching Library, Harvard University, 2 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138. Fax: (617) 496‑6008. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for receiving applications is December 22, 2015.
