The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is offering the Predissertation-Summer Grants through the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies.
Predissertation grants provide funding for graduate students who wish to conduct preliminary preparations in China prior to beginning basic research for the dissertation. The grants are for graduate students—with a Ph.D. prospectus in hand or developing one—to investigate the research currently underway in Chinese archives and field sites, to establish contact with Chinese scholars, and to secure necessary permissions for their own fieldwork or archival research.
More information on these grants, including the application form, is available at
The deadline for applications is November 12, 2013.
