Japanese Studies Pre-Dissertation Research Grant

Eligibility:  University of Chicago graduate students engaged in pre-dissertation research. Students who have received a CEAS Japanese Studies Recruitment Fellowship are not eligible for this grant.

The award takes the form of a reimbursement for up to $3,000 of expenses and supports pre-dissertation research in Japanese Studies. Typically, funds are used to finance summer research in the target country. The funds are intended to enable University of Chicago graduate students to lay the foundations for their research plans (for example, to survey holdings in archives, or to identify and meet with scholars and advisers with whom a student plans to work in Asia).  A student is eligible for this grant only once during his/her graduate school career. Reimbursable expenses include economy airfare, local travel, accommodations, and meals. Receipts and paperwork must be submitted within 30 days of returning from travel. No exceptions.
