CSWR summer grants available

The Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard Divinity School has announced that it is now accepting applications for its 2003 summer grants, which may be used to fund research, language study, or internships in religion. Harvard juniors and graduate students who are enrolled in full-time degree programs with a primary focus on the study of religious phenomena are eligible to apply.

Students whose research touches on religion and the arts, globalization, health and healing, and “the city,” are particularly encouraged to apply.

Base award amounts will be $2,000 to $3,000. CSWR may also award “supplemental grants” of $1,000 to $2,000 each to winners of base awards whose proposals are deemed exceptional.

The application deadline is March 14. Forms are available at For more information, contact Keith Brown, coordinator of fellowship programs, at (617) 496-5834.

Study scholarship opportunities in China

Scholarships for one academic year of study or research in China are made possible through an agreement between the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China and Harvard University. For the 2003-04 academic year, five full scholarships (covering tuition, housing, health insurance, and books) and 10 partial scholarships (covering tuition) will be offered for study or research at one of approximately 80 Chinese universities authorized by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) to admit foreign scholarship students.

Harvard undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty who are citizens of the United States are eligible to apply. The application deadline is March 14. Because the CSC requires applicants to submit the results of a medical examination on forms provided with the application, scholarship candidates are urged to arrange for a medical exam at the earliest date possible.

For more information, contact the Committee on General Scholarships, 218 Byerly Hall, at (617) 495-5126, or e-mail
