Edward G. Seidensticker Japan Summer Research Grant

The Center for Asian Studies invites CU Boulder graduate students doing research on Japan to apply for the Edward G. Seidensticker Japan Summer Research Grant. The Center will offer several grants of up to a maximum of $1000 each to help fund graduate level research on Japan during Summer 2018.

All graduate students in good standing as of Spring 2018 are invited to apply. Applicants will be required to submit a two-page research statement showing how grant funding would support their Japan-related research project, as well as application form (available here), C.V., unofficial transcripts for all graduate-level coursework, and an itemized budget detailing anticipated expenses for the research project. Funding is limited, so applicants are encouraged to submit reasonable and realistic budgets.

Application Information:

Complete applications are due on Monday, February 12, 2018 via email to cas@colorado.edu. Write “Seidensticker Grant Application” in the subject line.

Award recipients will be required to submit a report in Fall 2018 detailing the nature of their research and the impact of the Seidensticker funding for CAS marketing and program development use.  Award notifications will be made by April 1, 2018.

If you have questions about this opportunity, please direct them to CAS Executive Director Danielle Rocheleau Salaz (Salaz@colorado.edu or 303-735-5312).
