The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies will aid scholars embarking on careers in research and teaching on Chinese history, literature, culture, and society. Annually, it will award stipends for pre-dissertation research in China, grants for collaborative reading workshops that unite a number of disciplines and scholarly generations, and postdoctoral research fellowships for scholars within eight years of the receipt of the Ph.D. These awards are designed to compensate for the decline in funding for early-career researchers at many American institutions of higher education. By supporting research in China, Luce/ACLS awards will also facilitate connections between American specialists and their Chinese counterparts, relationships that reflect the increased scholarly trade between the two countries. Please visit their website for more information.
