Luce/ACLS Grantees in East and Southeast Asian Archaeology and Early History

Loading...

Rapid development in East and Southeast Asia is literally unearthing archaeological finds that are revolutionizing our understanding of the history and prehistory of Asia’s distinctive civilizations. Yet archaeological scholarship and preservation face many challenges. The Luce Foundation and ACLS have undertaken a multi-year initiative to train the next generation of specialists, strengthen institutional programs, and support innovative research. The program is also designed to foster ties between scholars in Asia and North America and bring wider visibility to this field.

Read more about these fellowship programs. For further information on institutional grants, please contact Helena Kolenda, Program Officer for Asia, Henry Luce Foundation (212.489.7700; hkolenda@hluce.org).
