New Funding for Taiwan Studies

The Fairbank Center and the Ministry of Education of the Republic of China (Taiwan) have signed a memorandum of understanding for a three-year initiative that will bring new funding to Taiwan Studies at Harvard University.

The funding will provide increased financial support for research on Taiwan by undergraduate and graduate students at Harvard.

In addition, the initiative will help support the Fairbank Center’s Hou Family Fellows in Taiwan Studies, events and seminars about Taiwan, and publications of books related to Taiwan.

The initiative will launch in August 2021.
