SUMMER RESEARCH GRANTS
APPLICATION DEADLINE: EARLY FEBRUARY 2020
The Fairbank Center offers grants to support graduate student summer research in or relating to China and Taiwan. The competition is open to graduate students from all schools at Harvard at all stages of their academic careers. Grants generally will not exceed $3,000. Recipients are required to submit, upon their return, a brief report on their work over the summer. Please submit all application materials via CARAT and follow the instructions carefully.
Please apply to all funding sources that could cover your request and note on your application that you have done so. This will not hurt your chances of being selected for this grant, but it will increase your chances of being co-funded.
