Offers grants to support summer research and unpaid internship projects in East Asia

Grants are open to currently enrolled Columbia undergraduates—students in Columbia College, Barnard College, Columbia Engineering and the School of General Studies are eligible, provided they will be completing their studies following the grant period. Candidates should have taken at least two courses in East Asian studies before applying and must be maintaining a GPA of at least 3.5.

Selection criteria include academic excellence, demonstrated interest in East Asia, and demonstrated commitment to incorporating East Asia into long-term academic or professional career goals. See the Weatherhead Institute’s website for information on additional grant opportunities.
