CEAPS Affiliated Faculty Conference Travel Grant (Fall 2023 Deadline: October 15, 2023)
The CEAPS Affiliated Faculty Conference Travel Grant is open to any CEAPS affiliated faculty from all departments and colleges. You must be a current faculty affiliate and have a paper with a strong East Asian and Pacific Studies focus accepted in a conference to apply. Preference will be given to conference presentations at national and international conferences. While this travel grant is primarily designed for conference travel, the CEAPS Advisory Board will consider requests for travel support to conduct research in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the greater Pacific region. Priority will be given to those proposals that concern East Asian and Pacific issues. A project report (up to 500 words) summarizing research findings will be required for research travel grantees.

CEAPS Graduate Student Travel Grant (Fall 2023 Deadline: October 15, 2023)
The CEAPS Graduate Student Travel Grant provides travel awards for graduate students to present papers at professional conferences or to conduct dissertation research in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the greater Pacific region. Priority will be given to those proposals that concern East Asian and Pacific issues. The number of awards is determined each year based on funding availability.
Applicants must be registered full-time and in good academic standing during the term the award is received. Students in non-degree, online, cost-recovery, and self-supporting programs are ineligible. Applicants may receive only one Conference Travel Award and one Dissertation Research Travel Award per academic year. The past recipients may reapply; however, the priority will be given to new applicants.
