The East Asian Library at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce its 2016 travel grants. These grants are made available through special funding from the Asian Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh. The purpose of the grants is to support scholars who wish to do research at the East Asian Library, University of Pittsburgh. The grants will be available up to $500 for each candidate depending on the need and the location of the individual. Special consideration will be given to those researchers in Pennsylvania and the nearby region whose libraries have no major East Asian collections, and without receiving such grants previously.
The East Asian Library at Pitt consists of over 490,000 volumes/items in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and English. The primary focus of the collections is on humanities and social sciences. For further information about the East Asian Library and its collections, please visit our website at http://www.library.pitt.edu/eal-collections-resources.
Applications received before May 31 will receive priority consideration. To apply, please send a letter of application with a brief description of your research topic, a curriculum vitae, the type/subject of materials you need, and an estimated budget to Haihui Zhang, Head of the East Asian Library at firstname.lastname@example.org.
