Description:

COVID-19 and CEAS Grants
The most up-to-date information regarding international travel and CEAS grants can be found on the COVID-19 and MacMillan Grants website.  Because the pandemic is fast-moving, and national, local, and Yale policies may change in response, the MacMillan Center will continue to update this page as new information becomes available, so check back regularly.

Continuously updated information for all Yale affiliates, including graduate students, faculty, and staff, can also be found on the COVID-19 Information website. Research at Yale offers guidance for faculty and researchers at Yale during the COVID-19 outbreak.


The Council on East Asian Studies Field Research Grants provide funding for Yale University graduate students in the Arts & Sciences who expect to be engaged in research on their doctoral dissertations during the summer and/or next academic year. Grants are for research generally outside the United States and are available to registered Yale graduate students who have completed, or will complete, all pre-dissertation work before the next academic year. The approved dissertation research must focus primarily on China, Japan, and/or Korea. 


Because grants will, in most instances, be supplementary to support provided from the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale (MacMillan Center) or outside resources, the usual awards will not exceed $7,000. Students who have applied to other sources of funds (both within Yale and at the national level such as ACLS, SSRC, Japan Foundation, and Monbusho) and have been turned down may be eligible for a maximum grant of $15,000.


Recipients of a CEAS Field Research Grant must submit a four-page (no less than 1,000 words) project report in English detailing the student’s progress and a summary of the report in the relevant foreign language (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, or Korean). If the project is more than one term, then students are required to submit an interim and final report. Reports must be accompanied by itemized original receipts for expenses covered by the grant. Detailed requirements on reporting are provided in award letters. Accepting a CEAS Field Research Grant obligates one to fulfill these requirements.



Application Information:

Please read the application instructions carefully. It is the applicant's responsibility to see that the complete application, including letter of recommendation and transcript, reaches us by the deadline; applications cannot be considered without this information.

A complete application includes a project proposal; timetable of research; budget including information about other possible sources of funding; resume; Yale transcript; and letter of recommendation.

Your project proposal should be no more than five pages including detailed information on the duration and location of your research project, the resources to be used, and possible institutional affiliations.

When you submit your itemized budget, please be sure to list all other pending sources of funding, both within Yale and at the national/international level, to which you are applying (including the amounts).

PLEASE NOTE: your proposed project budget must conform to CEAS budget guidelines, which are available on the Council on East Asian Studies website. Please contact eastasian.studies@yale.edu with questions.

Special Eligibility Requirements:

Grants are for research generally outside the United States and are available to registered Yale graduate students who have completed, or will complete, all pre-dissertation work before the next academic year. The approved dissertation research must focus primarily on China, Japan, or Korea.

Applicants who apply for the CEAS Field Research Grant may not apply for the CEAS Summer Travel & Research Grant, which is for pre-dissertation research only.



Restrictions to Use of Award:

Yale University policy requires that certain types of research projects involving human subjects be reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to the start of the study to ensure that the project meets University Policy and any other applicable regulations. To see if your project needs to be reviewed, for advice on working with human subjects, and for more information about the IRB process and requirements go to https://your.yale.edu/research-support/human-research.
