CAPS Small Professional Grants for Faculty

The Center for Asian and Pacific Studies is offering awards of up to $500 in support of the professional activities of its faculty. Awards will be made for the following purposes: travel to conferences to present papers (once funds from the faculty member’s department have been exhausted), travel to library, museum, and archival collections; and expenses related to book and article production and publication.

To submit a proposal, please click here to complete the online application form.

Applications will be reviewed twice per year. The deadlines for small grant applications are:

Fall: November 16, 2018 (for winter and spring 2019 projects)

Spring: April 5, 2019 (for summer and fall 2019 projects)

Awards must be used within one year of the date of the award. Applicants may apply for a CAPS Small Grant before they’ve been accepted to a conference, though their award will be continent upon acceptance confirmation.

No retroactive awards can be made. Successful applicants are asked, after the award has been used, to write a brief letter to CAPS reporting on the completion of the relevant project.
