About the Program
The ACLS Comparative Perspectives on Chinese Culture and Society program will not be offered in 2019-20. The description below is for informational purposes only.
The program supports collaborative work of three types:
Planning Meetings: Grants up to $6,000 for one-day meetings to develop topics selected by participants. These brainstorming sessions may lead to workshops or conferences, but that is not required by the terms of this grant.
Workshops: Grants of $10,000 to $15,000 for workshops to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas on newly available or inadequately researched data or texts in a collegial, seminar-like setting. Workshops are not mini-conferences for presentation of formal papers describing work already completed.
Conferences: Grants up to $25,000 for formal conferences for presentation of significant new research to be published in a conference volume.
The program promotes interchange among scholars who might not otherwise have the opportunity to work together. Accordingly, there will be no support for activities that include scholars from only one institution, that fall within an institution’s normal range of colloquia, symposia, or seminar series, or that consist of regularly scheduled meetings, conventions, or parts thereof. Activities proposed must include at least one scholar from Taiwan.
The principal organizer must be affiliated with a university or research institution and must hold a PhD. There are no restrictions as to the citizenship of participants or the location of the event.
