We're delighted to report that IEAS has been awarded both the National Resource Center and Foreign Language and Area Studies grants for the 2014-18 cycle. These Title VI grants will provide $220K in NRC program funds and $253.5K in FLAS fellowships for students (both academic year and summer). This amounts to $473,500 per year for East Asian studies at Berkeley, or $1,894,000 over the next four years. These grants will fund, among other things, a number of new research and outreach programs at IEAS, and courses in East Asian Languages and Cultures (including Mongolian language, seminar courses in Korean, and new courses in Tibetan); as well as 7-8 academic year and 4-5 summer FLAS awards for our graduate students.
