Asia Center Group Travel Grants for Students
The Asia Center offers travel grants for students participating in group trips to Southeast Asia for research and/or service during winter or summer. Trips must include a significant educational component for participants. Grants will ordinarily not exceed $750 per student. Grants are made to individual students and are not transferable to others in the group. All Asia Center grant recipients must be in good standing at the time of the award. Please note that there is no guarantee that all individual applicants participating in a group application will receive funding.
Groups do not need to be formally recognized student organizations.
Harvard University is closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and based on the recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of State, is strongly discouraging travel to China until further notice.
The Asia Center will continue to consider applications for travel grants from students and faculty as usual, but please note that any funding decisions for travel to China will be provisional and contingent on a change to Harvard's current recommendation.
