The U.S. Department of Education has awarded over $2.1 million to the University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) for the period of 2018 to 2022.

CEAS is a recipient of grants from Title VI of the Higher Education Act, International Education Programs, and has been designated a National Resource Center (NRC) and will administer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships to support the advanced study of modern, less commonly taught languages (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) and international and area studies related to East Asia. 

This funding will support a variety of activities on campus, as well as K-16 outreach initiatives, including professional development opportunities for educators and promotion of global, co-curricular activities with local schools, community colleges, and minority-serving institutions. CEAS looks forward to continuing and enhancing its efforts to promote teaching, research, interdisciplinary scholarship, and greater public understanding of East Asia.
