Graduate Fellowship

The Asian Cultural Council gives a small number of scholarships to students admitted to a graduate degree program in the United States. Grantees must be enrolled in a program that falls within the 16 accepted disciplines

Funding is intended to cover travel and living expenses related to graduate study. Tuition costs are not supported. 

Priority is given to applicants who will study in the United States because comparable programs are not available in their home countries and/or because they work in a field that is underrepresented in their home countries. 

Graduate Fellowships are awarded for one academic year, with the possibility of renewing for one (1) additional year.

Through the Graduate Fellowship, ACC aims to contribute to the diversification of scholarly narratives and critical discourses through increasing access to academic training in the arts and cultural field. 

Applications are currently closed. The next Asia funding cycle will open in Fall 2024.
