Moynihan Summer Research Grants – East Asia

Attention Syracuse University Graduate Students

East Asia Logo

The Moynihan Institute’s East Asia Program will grant awards to Syracuse University graduate students of up to $2,000 to support research on East Asia during the summer of 2020.  The research may be conducted in East Asia or other parts of the world.  The purpose of the award is to provide students the opportunity to gather data, make contacts, map topics, and increase the competitiveness of future proposals for funding.  Any student enrolled in a PhD program at Syracuse University may apply.

The awards are competitive and proposals will be judged on the basis of (i) the quality of the proposed research, (ii) the organization and thoughtfulness of the proposal, and (iii) the appropriateness and feasibility of the research plan in relation to the student's background and qualifications. 

You may apply for more than one summer grant from the Moynihan Institute, but you will not receive more than one in a given year from the Institute.  Awards are ranked separately, so if your proposal is accepted by more than one committee, you will be awarded the better opportunity. If you win an award this year, you may apply for this or another award next year.
