The Esherick-Ye Family Foundation has just been established as an IRS 501(c)3 corporation to support small grants of up to $5,000 for projects in modern Chinese economic, social, and political history; or Chinese archaeology. The funds are limited with funds expected to cover four or five grants. Grants will support travel to China for research or field work. They may also be used to supplement others grants (such as Fulbright Fellowships) which limit travel to a single country. For example, a Fulbright grant for research in the PRC could be supplemented by an Esherick-Ye Foundation grant for additional research in Taiwan.  Grants are available for graduate students and untenured faculty for projects on modern Chinese history, and for undergraduate and graduate students as well as untenured faculty in archaeology.
