#CEASStudentHighlights: Following the Journey of Students Abroad

Each year, the Center for East Asian Studies supports University of Chicago students through a variety of grants and fellowships, including Foreign Language Acquisition Grants (FLAG), Pre-Dissertation Research Grants, Dissertation Fellowships, and Professional Training Grants.

As students embark upon summer and academic year research and/or language study in China, Japan and Korea, we follow them on their journey and catch a glimpse of their work through shared stories and pictures. 

Follow these students on our Facebook and Twitter pages as we highlight their studies and work abroad! #CEASStudentHighlights
