The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies: Collaborative Reading-Workshop Grants


The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies seeks to maintain the vitality of China Studies in the US through fellowships and grants designed primarily for scholars early in their careers.

Collaborative Reading-Workshop Grants provide opportunities for scholars of different disciplines to share in-depth investigation of texts that are essential points of entry to Chinese periods, traditions, communities, or events in contemporary or historical times.

This program is made possible by a generous grant from The Henry Luce Foundation.
