2014-2015 CSUN China Institute Faculty Development Grants:

Application Deadline

Feb. 3

Faculty at CSUN with an interest in China are invited to apply for initial seed money from the China Institute to start a project in their discipline that advances the field of China Studies or promotes long-term exchange and collaboration for faculty and students. Applicants should explain how this grant may stimulate larger and longer range projects. There will be two grants of $1000 each, which can be used to support travel expenses for faculty's visit to China to conduct their projects.

Applicants should submit a written proposal of no more than three double-spaced pages. It should cover the nature and purpose of their project, how they intend to carry it out, how it may help CSUN students or our collaborative relationship with Chinese institutions, and how the funds will be spent related to their travel to China. We encourage faculty to initiate projects related to China and to use the grant as the initial seed money to generate more funds to support the projects in the long-term. The grants are limited to use by CSUN faculty, not by faculty in international partner universities.

Additionally, a one page resume highlighting relevant experiences must be included. A word file containing the proposal and resume must be submitted to the China Institute Review Committee Chair, Dr. Weimin Sun via e-mail: weimin.sun@csun.edu no later than Feb. 3, 2014. The China Institute Grant and Scholarship Review Committee will review all applications carefully and make recommendations to the China Institute Director and Executive Committee. Decisions on awards will be announced at the Chinese New Year's Banquet at the end of March. Grant recipients are expected to provide written reports on their grant activities to the China Institute by June 30, 2015. Faculty interested in further information regarding these grants may contact the China Institute by e-mailing Dr. Weimin Sun, Chair of the Review Committee at weimin.sun@csun.edu.
