The Harvard China Fund, under the Office of the Provost, is now accepting 2011 fiscal year grant proposals from Harvard faculty, programs, and Schools. The purpose of the fund is to support interdisciplinary research and teaching about and in China, to focus Harvard’s considerable strengths in the field toward directly tackling challenges that face China, and to improve communication and collaboration between Harvard’s faculty and Schools, and Chinese universities and research institutes.

Grant proposals may be in any field, but preference will be given to projects for which funding might not be otherwise available from traditional sources. During this phase of the program, the Harvard China Fund expects to fund several proposals at the $100,000 to $200,000 range, and encourages applicants to seek matching funds.
