Funding Opportunities

Here’s a brief list of some of the Awards:

  • FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship) Awards (Note: includes both summer and academic year fellowships ) — For students concentrating in modern foreign language (in this case: Chinese, Tibetan, Japanese or Korean) and a program that includes international or area studies.
  • Irwin S. Penn Memorial Scholarship — Travel funding to China for University of Virginia Graduate Students (any discipline) for the purpose of language study or dissertation research.
  • Ellen Bayard Weedon Travel Grants — Funds granted are to be used towards the cost of round-trip air fare between Charlottesville and East Asia. Travel within an Asian country will not be covered by the grant.
  • Founders Student Travel Grant — The Founders Travel Grant is a special honor to a student planning language work in East Asia, and it supplements the available Weedon travel grants.

Please review the East Asia Center’s GRANTS page for the complete list of grants, their applications, deadlines and further information.
