Funding Opportunities

For Faculty

 

Faculty Travel Award, Fall 2017

 

We are very pleased to announce that the East Asian Studies Center is now accepting applications for its Fall 2017 conference/research travel award competition. This funding is now possible since EASC was able to secure Title VI NRC funding for the years 2014-2018. Priority is given to faculty who are presenting papers and the maximum award amount is $500. The application deadline is Tuesday, September 5th.

 

Due to funding limitations, the dollar amount of the travel funds awarded in this competition may not be enough to cover your conference travel, so we encourage you to seek other funding sources as well.

 

Please also note that due to Title VI funding regulations there are some restrictions on the use of an EASC conference travel grant for international travel. International travel can be covered but must be approved 6 weeks in advance of the departure date. To be reimbursed for international airfare you may need to travel on U.S.-owned carriers in order to comply with the Fly America Act and you must complete the flight reservation section of the application form. If planning an overseas trip, please contact me at kang43@indiana.edu at least 6 weeks before the departure date or ASAP.

 

All travel must be completed and receipts forwarded to the East Asian Studies Center for reimbursement within the fall term. (August 21st– December 15th)  However, due to fiscal deadlines, it is encouraged that all receipts be submitted before December 15th, 2017. Application materials include:

 

Application (PDF)

One-page abstract of your paper (in English)

Notice of acceptance or copy of the conference program

Letter of endorsement from your department chair

 

Application materials can be submitted by e-mail or postal mail.
