The Center for Asian and Pacific Studies (CAPS) at the University of Oregon has been awarded a U.S. Department of Education Title VI East Asia National Resource Center grant. In our proposal, we included funding for the creation of a network of East Asia scholars from Oregon college and university campuses as well as community and government groups with a focus on East Asia. With this funding, we hope to facilitate cooperation, collaboration, and creativity among and between East Asianists in our region.
Below are some of the activities we can fund:
1. Inviting someone from the network to speak on an East Asia topic at your institution.
2. Travel funding to attend a conference or event at another network institution.
3. Funds to “piggy back” on events hosted by other network institutions.
4. Research Interest Groups – provide funds to purchase reading materials and defray the travel expenses of network members.
Transnational and/or interdisciplinary activities focused on East Asia are encouraged. To apply for the East Asia Network Funding, please complete this online application.
