Asia Center Winter Research Travel Grants for Undergraduate Students

Harvard University Asia Center

Asia Center Undergraduate Winter Research Travel Grants support undergraduate students who are conducting research over the winter recess that looks at two or more countries of East, South, and Southeast Asia comparatively or explores the relations among Asian countries. Individual country topics will be considered only 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.

Winter grant applications are due on Friday, November 4, 2022.

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.
