The AAS/CIAC has funds to support small grants for members working on China, Taiwan, or Inner Asia. The CIAC Small Grants program is supported by generous funding by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation, as well as from independent donations from AAS members that are just now in the process of being solicited. We are typically able to award approximately twenty small grants annually (and we are hoping we can garner as much in donations as we did last year to enable this number of awards).
