Harvard-TUSA Collaboration Program

Application Deadline: Rolling

Per the Fairbank Center’s recently signed MOU with TUSA, funds are available to support faculty members at Harvard to invite faculty from TUSA member universities to visit Harvard for scholarly collaboration. This collaboration can include seminars, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, collaborative conferences, and/or collaborative research.

Applications will be reviewed by a committee at the Fairbank Center. Application deadlines will be the last day of the month for each month from July, 2017- May 2018. The committee will respond to applications within a week of each deadline.

In general, each Taiwanese scholar traveling to Cambridge can be reimbursed for the cost of round-trip economy airfare plus expenses of US $301/day for accommodation and meals.  Below are more specific reimbursement guidelines for the visitor from Taiwan, who will be reimbursed by National Taiwan University.

These funds must be expended by June 30, 2018; applicants are encouraged to begin planning and to send us the application form as early as possible.

Please submit questions and applications to Nick Drake at ndrake@fas.harvard.edu.

Book Workshop Grants

The Fairbank Center announces the availability of three grants ($5,000 each) for Harvard faculty to organize a book workshop in the 2014-15 academic year, bringing together a small group of scholars to study and comment on the proposer’s book manuscript. The objective of the workshop is to assist the author in refining the book content and also to advance the field of Chinese studies by providing a forum for scholars to have in-depth discussions about their related areas of expertise.
