Call for Proposals for Research Awards from the Center for Vietnamese Philosophy, Culture, and Society, Temple University
Deadline: September 10, 2014
With generous funding from the Luce Foundation, we are able to offer research awards of up to $10,000 to Vietnamese scholars who would like to travel to the United States to further their research agendas. Funds could be used to go to libraries, access archives in the United States, attend seminars or meetings, work with U.S. scholars on joint projects, or for other research-related purposes.  Funds are not intended to be used for language training or for degree attainment. Research can be proposed for anytime during the 2014-2015 academic year. We welcome applications from all provinces in Vietnam.  For the coming academic year we hope to be able to fund two scholars.
 
We require a proposal from applicants of no more than five pages, which describes the research that will be conducted in the U.S., and how this fits in to the applicant’s larger research agenda.  Applicants should specifically address how doing research in the U.S. will further their research agenda. We ask that the applicant include a current CV and one letter of reference from someone familiar with his or her work.  Applicants should also include a proposed budget. Applicants should be able to offer proof of a high level of proficiency in spoken English. These funds are available for scholars of all levels, from advanced graduate students to experienced professors.
 
Those scholars to whom we award research money may be invited to share their research with the Center at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  This is not a requirement of the grant, however.  Researchers are expected to be able to do their research independently and will not be affiliated with Temple University.
 
Please address all questions and send the requested material (proposal, CV, budget, and letter of reference) as email attachments to kgoyette@temple.edu.
