ACLS Announces Awards in China Studies Programs

7/10/2014

The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the results of the 2013-2014 competitions of the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies and of the Comparative Perspectives on Chinese Culture and Society program, supported by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange.

There were three competitions in the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies, offering predissertation-summer grants, postdoctoral fellowships, and collaborative reading-workshop grants. The competition for the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation program offered grants for planning meetings, workshops, and conferences. All combined, 31 fellowships and grants were awarded from over 190 applications.

Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies

Luce/ACLS Predissertation-Summer Grants were awarded to 16 PhD students—with a PhD prospectus in hand or developing one—to enable preliminary preparations in China prior to beginning basic research for the dissertation.

Luce/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships were awarded to nine scholars for projects in disciplines ranging from archaeology to sociology, history, and literature. Postdoctoral fellowships support scholars preparing their PhD dissertations for publication or embarking on the first major research projects after their dissertations. This competition year postdoctoral fellowships are supported in part by funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Luce/ACLS Collaborative Reading-Workshop Grants were awarded to four teams of scholars to convene multi- and inter-disciplinary groups of professors and graduate students for focused examination of texts that constitute essential points of entry to Chinese periods, traditions, communities, or events, in either contemporary or historical times.

The Comparative Perspectives on Chinese Culture and Society program, funded by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, awarded two grants. The program supports collaborative work in China studies and offers grants for planning meetings, workshops, and conferences.

“These fellowships and grants,” noted Andrzej W. Tymowski, director of international programs at ACLS, “will enable early career scholars to develop new knowledge on China. With the support of the Henry Luce Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, awardees will undertake research to extend our understanding of China’s history, culture, and societal dynamics.”

Information about the next competition is available here. The online application system will open in July 2014.
