The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies seeks to maintain
the vitality of China Studies in the U.S. through fellowships and grants
designed primarily for scholars early in their careers. Studies on and in
China have developed over the last 30 years in the United States into a
robust field, but current conditions pose daunting problems, especially for
scholars just before and just after the dissertation.
The Luce/ACLS Program in China Studies will aid scholars embarking on
careers in research and teaching on Chinese history, literature, culture,
and society. Annually, it will award stipends for pre-dissertation research
in China, grants for collaborative reading workshops that unite a number of
disciplines and scholarly generations, and postdoctoral research fellowships
for scholars within eight years of the receipt of the Ph.D.
