關於經費 — Financial Information

中國研究中心無法為訪問學者提供財政支持。伯克利大學的政策規定,學者必須出示擁有資金的支持。資金可以来自于雇主提供的錢,公認的國際組織獎學金,或學者個人的資金。如係雇主或獎學金支持,雇主必須提供的支持信,指出資金總額,資金使用和日期的資金保證。在個人資金的情況下,學者們必須提供銀行對帳單或信件, 表示可用總額儲蓄。

The Center for Chinese Studies is unable to provide financial support for its visiting scholars. As required by University policy, each scholar must provide the visiting department with proof of financial support during their proposed period of stay. Funding may come from the scholar's home institution, a fellowship from a recognized international organization, or personal funds. In the case of institutional or fellowship support, the funding organization must supply a letter of support that details total amount of funding, uses of funds, and date to which funding is guaranteed. In the case of personal funds, the scholar must supply a bank statement or letter detailing the total amount in savings available.

關於健康保險 — Required Health Insurance

國內和國際的學者都需要出示健康保險證明。保險必須符合最低的覆蓋。學者們必須從本國帶來正式的健康保險單據(語)。如果不符合最低要求,學者們必須買美國的保險。有關健康保險, 請去訪問這個網站: http://vspa.berkeley.edu/visiting-researcher-scholar-health-insurance-and-requirements.

All domestic and international scholars are required to show proof of health insurance for the entire length of their stay that meets specified minimum levels of coverage.

If these conditions are not met, they must purchase insurance in the U.S. For more information please visit this website http://vspa.berkeley.edu/visiting-researcher-scholar-health-insurance-and-requirements.

關於學者的責任 — Scholarly Responsibilities

中心期許每個訪問學者參加中心的學術活動。還有在訪問年底,我們要求學者們給中心一分研究文章和訪問結果報告。我們也鼓勵學者們作個簡報, 用中文或英文都可以。



Visiting scholars are expected to actively participate in the Center's scholarly programs and attend regularly-scheduled talks or seminars throughout their stay. At the end of the appointment, scholars are expected to a) give a talk based on research done while at Berkeley (in Chinese or English); and b) submit a final report on the outcome of their research, including copies of publications or drafts of papers completed during their affiliation with the Center.

A visiting scholar's affiliation with the University of California Berkeley is limited. This means that visiting scholars cannot formally represent UC Berkeley. When a scholar works with organizations external to the UC Berkeley campus this work is considered independent. UC Berkeley does not sponsor, and cannot take responsibility for, the outcomes of these exchanges.

The Center for Chinese Studies requests scholars not to bring gifts for the CCS staff or chair. While we appreciate the gesture and respect the custom, the program's priority is to recognize the importance of your scholarly contribution and promote intellectual exchange at the Center.
