The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies is now open. Eligible candidates must be enrolled in a PhD program at a university in the United States or Canada. Three types of awards are available; Predissertation-Summer Travel Grants, Postdoctoral Fellowships and Collaborative Reading-Workshop Grants.

Studies on and in China have developed over the last 30 years in the United States and Canada into a robust field, but current conditions pose daunting problems, especially for scholars just before and just after the dissertation.
