External Award: Greater China Research Grant
With support from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, the Greater China Research Grant offers one-year fellowships to up to three individuals to study the Asia Art Archive's (AAA) Collection and develop historical research projects on topics relating to contemporary art in Mainland China, Taiwan, Macau, and Hong Kong.
With a panel of judges, including curators and scholars in the field, AAA will assess applicants based on their knowledge of contemporary art in the Greater China region, relevant experience in the field, proposed methodology, and feasibility of the proposed research. Eligible applicants include postgraduates (including pre-doctoral fellows) with a research focus on contemporary art or Greater China studies, and independent scholars and writers with solid research and publication track records.
The selected projects are expected to begin in March 2018 and to complete by March 2019.
AAA will award US$15,000 (approx. HK$120,000) to the top grantee. Budgets should allow for a two-month residency in Hong Kong; research trips to Mainland China, Taiwan, and/or Macau during the residency; and acquisition of new materials. Up to two runners-up will be awarded US$5,000 (approx. HK$40,000) each for their research projects.
To apply, please send enquiries and proposals to Asia Art Archive via firstname.lastname@example.org, including CV (academic history, relevant past projects, and at least two references), research project description (objectives, approach, and background), tentative timeline and budget proposal by Sunday, November 26, 2017.
