Asia Library Travel Grants

We welcome scholars from outside the university to apply for this grant to help cover the cost of travel to the Asia Library.

Our East Asian collection contains more than 900,000 volumes of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language materials in the humanities and social sciences, including history, philosophy, literature, and film studies.


Advanced graduate students and faculty of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean studies from other institutions.

What it covers

We provide up to $1,000 per trip, paid as reimbursement of your expenses.

This funding is meant to help with the cost of travel, lodging, meals, and photo duplication. Applicants must get approval prior to travel.

These grants are supported by the university’s Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies, the Center for Japanese Studies, and the Nam Center for Korean Studies.
