Coordinate Research Program
The Coordinate Research Program provides Harvard faculty with a chance to invite faculty members (NO graduate students) to join them in collaborative research projects in established Asian Studies. Priority will go to invitees based at universities and research institutions in Asia. While joint research is the primary focus, collaboration may also include co-teaching and/or co-organizing conferences and workshops. This grant is not intended to extend the stay of a scholar currently at Harvard.
Terms and conditions
Grants are made to qualified scholars to permit them to spend between 3 and 9 months at Harvard. The grant consists of economy fare roundtrip transportation to Cambridge, a monthly stipend, housing, and medical insurance for the individual scholar.
There are two deadlines for submission of applications to the program each year: April 15 and October 15. The nominating faculty should submit a letter explaining the collaborative nature of the project as well as an application form to be filled out by the nominated scholar [download application form ] and the scholar's list of publications. Harvard faculty will normally be limited to hosting a maximum of two coordinate scholars in any five-year period. Candidates to this competitive application process will be notified of the selection committee's decision no later than six weeks after the application deadline.
