Funding Opportunities

For updated information on funding opportunities, subscribe to receive This Week at CEAS. In the weekly email, we announce application deadlines and new opportunities as they are shared with us.

  • Conference Travel Awards: Awards up to $800 for domestic travel will be provided to faculty who are presenting papers, chairing, and/or commenting in accepted sessions related to East Asian topics at annual disciplinary meetings or at conferences relevant to East Asian studies. Other types of participation with a strong East Asia focus will also be considered. For all faculty and academic staff at UW-Madison.
  • Lecture and Conference Event Funding: CEAS welcomes proposals from a wide range of fields, including the social sciences, business, education, law, policy, the sciences, agriculture, and humanities. In evaluating proposals, CEAS will give priority to diversity of regional representation, and also to proposals that have received other sources of funding. Interdisciplinary and trans-departmental proposals are especially welcome. Events that aim to engage audiences beyond the university community will receive special consideration. The format is open (in-depth lecture, panel discussions, graduate student workshop, film screening, etc.). For affiliated faculty, graduate students, and registered student organizations.
  • Luce Scholars Program: This program is designed to provide an extended period of exposure to an Asian country for highly qualified young Americans who lack extensive knowledge of Asian affairs and who would not gain this knowledge through their normal career trajectories. Any professional field will be considered, except Asian Affairs/Asian Studies. For graduating seniors, recent alumni, graduate students, and junior faculty.
