CCKF Announces 2023 Edition of Library Travel Grant Programme

CCKF has launched the 2023 edition of its Library Travel Grant scheme, enabling sinologists in Europe to conduct research stays at specialist libraries around Europe.

The Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange (CCKF) is foundation dedicated to Chinese culture and society. The CCKF’s encourages scholars around the world to conduct research relating to China and to engage in international collaboration.

The Foundation offers biannual funding for one-week research stays at specialist sinological libraries or at major European museums for Chinese art, depending on the availability of funds. Applicants should be sinologists based permanently in Europe and preferably paid-up members of the EACS. Applications from non-members will be considered, particularly from students and young scholars (up to 35 years), if accompanied by a recommendation letter from an EACS member. Priority is given to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from Ukraine.

A complete index of sinological libraries in Europe can be found on the European Association of Sinological Librarians (EASL) webpage.

Travel grants include transport costs (lowest class air fare or rail fare) and a daily allowance for the week-long stay, depending on the destination.

For the 2023 edition, applications must be submitted by either 20 April or 20 October.
