The East Asia Library, together with the Center for East Asian Studies, has recently concluded its review of applicants for the 2017-2018 cycle of travel grant funding, the last year of its four-year funding cycle.  All grant recipients from the past four years are listed below.

Each year, the Center for East Asian Studies and the East Asia Library collaborate to provide grants of up to $750 for East Asian studies-related research projects.  The grant money is provided by the Center for East Asian Studies, with funding from the Department of Education Title VI program.  Awardees are selected from a pool of applicants by the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean studies librarians.  These travel grants allow scholars from other institutions outside the greater San Francisco Bay Area to travel to Stanford for the purpose of conducting research in the East Asia Library's collections, and special consideration is given to applicants whose home institutions do not possess robust East Asian-language collections.  

Some applicants are motivated to come to Stanford by the breadth of the East Asia Library's holdings, while others come to work on specific materials, such as the many rare and unique items in the library's special collections.  One recent awardee, Dr. Dong Hoon Kim, Assistant Professor in the department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at the University of Oregon, came to Stanford in 2015 to utilize the library's Korean and Japanese collections to conduct research on Korean filmmaking culture during the period of the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910 - 1945) and the role of this period in the development of a Korean cinema.  Dr. Kim recently published his findings in a monograph entitled Eclipsed Cinema: The Film Culture of Colonial Korea (Edinburgh University Press, 2017), in which he acknowledged the assistance of the Stanford East Asia Library and Stanford's Korean Studies Librarian, Kyungmi Chun.  The East Asia Library and Center for East Asian Studies are proud to support the innovative and important research of these grant recipients, and hope to continue the travel grant program pending availability of Title VI funding.  All grant recipients from the 2014-2018 cycles are listed below:
