Faculty Support

Faculty Awards

Each academic year the Center makes modest research funds available to Berkeley faculty whose research concentrates in whole or in part on China. Funds are allocated based on the strength of the research proposal submitted, and the total amount of funding available. Possible uses for these grants include hiring of GSIs, purchase of research-related supplies, and reimbursement of research-related travel expenses. Announcements and applications are sent out in late May or early June for the following academic year.

Workshop/Conference Funding

The Center welcomes UC Berkeley faculty to make funding requests to hold workshops or conferences focusing on China. Award amounts will vary according to the conference size and availability of funds. Applications can be submitted to ccs@berkeley.edu, and should include a brief proposal and a budget.

The deadline for conferences to be held in Fall 2016 is March 15, 2016. For conferences to be held in Spring 2017 the deadline is September 15, 2016, but earlier submissions will be accepted.
