In 2018, ACC makes grants in the following categories. The General Eligibility Guidelines apply to all grant categories.
New York Fellowship Program (Asia-to-U.S. only)
For individuals who wish to participate in a six-month fellowship program based in New York City. The program includes comprehensive logistical and programmatic support from ACC staff. Fellowships may involve targeted research, but open-ended exploration is also allowed and encouraged.
Individual Fellowship Program (Asia-to-U.S., or intra-Asia)
For individuals (or up to two collaborators) undertaking self-directed research trips of one to six months. Partial funding for dissertation research projects of up to one year is also available in this category. Some programmatic support from ACC staff may be offered as needed.
Graduate Scholarship (Asia-to-U.S. only)
For students pursuing graduate degrees in the U.S., with priority given to students who do not have access to comparable programs at home, and to those studying in fields that are underrepresented in their home country. Scholarships are for one year and provide for travel expenses and a living stipend, but cannot support full tuition costs.
