Dissertation-level graduate students and scholars with special interests in China, Taiwan, or Inner Asia are invited to submit proposals. Applicants must be current AAS members, but there are no citizenship requirements.
The purpose of the Borg Collaborative Grant is to prepare for the challenge of studying transnational issues involving the United States and East Asia and to explore new conceptual strategies and themes for understanding the study of US-East Asia through small-scale conferences, workshops, and collaborative research.
Grantmaking in South and Central Asia will support projects designed to promote civil society- led initiatives for conflict transformation and strengthen local and regional capacities for dialogue and peacebuilding across ethnic, sectarian and national boundaries. In partnership with civil society organizations, USIP uses grantmaking to test new ideas and pioneering approaches to peacebuilding efforts through education, training, research, and the media.
