Asia Center Undergraduate Summer Research Travel Grants

Harvard University Asia Center

Research must look at two or more countries of East, South, and Southeast Asia comparatively or explore the relations among Asian countries. Individual country topics may only be considered for Southeast Asian countries or if they are part of broader, multi-country research. This multi-country context must be made explicit in the application. Projects relating to Asian diasporas and/or Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) studies will also be considered.

Grant recipients are required to submit a written report upon completion that may be used by the Asia Center online and in printed materials.

Grants are open to students who will be returning to Harvard for at least one semester following the funded activity. Students must be in good standing at the time of funding.
