Thanks to the continued support of the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation the EACS also in 2019 is able to fund one-week visits for specialised research in Sinological libraries in Cambridge, Heidelberg, Leiden, London, Munich, Oxford or Paris. Applications received before the two deadlines of March 20 and October 20 will be considered within 3 weeks after receipt.
Applicants should be Sinologists based permanently in Europe and preferably paid-up members of the EACS. Applications from non-members will be considered, especially in case of students and young scholars (up to 35 years), if accompanied by a recommendation letter from an EACS member.
Applications for Travel Grants are restricted to two applications by the same applicant, with first-time applicants having priority. Once the grant has been approved, the beneficiary must use it in maximum 6 months from the approval date.
Priorities are given to applicants as follows:
a. Central and Eastern Europe students b. Western Europe students c. Central and Eastern Europe scholars d. Western Europe scholars
