Faculty Travel Grant

Travel Grant

The CEAS Faculty Travel Grant for the 2023-2024 Academic Year has closed. Please look back in Spring of 2024 for the call to reopen for the 2024-2025 academic year.

CEAS is pleased to offer up to two grants open to our affiliated faculty members for the 2023-2024 academic year. Each grant is for up to $1000 in support and must be used for a presentation related to East Asia in an academic conference during 8/15/2023 - 2/15/2024. Our goal in providing these funds is to strengthen and promote the research and teaching of East Asia here at The University of Arizona.

Our requirement is that your presentation is related to these world regions: mainland China, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Mongolia, and the Himalayan region. Once we received your application, a review committee will be formed to review the application. 

The deadline of application is 6/15/2023. If you have any questions, please contact: eas-center@arizona.edu

Please note that the recipients of last round are not eligible to apply. 

A separate grant only for language faculty is also available.
