Apply Now - 2013 U.S.-China Visiting Scholar Network Travel Grant Program
April 11 - May 20 @ 5:00 PM - Purdue University
Each year over 200 of China’s leading professors, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students are hosted by Purdue faculty as visiting scholars on extended research stays. They come to Purdue to avail themselves of our world-class laboratories and faculty while sharing their own knowledge and technological perspectives and strengths. Most importantly, they come to Purdue to participate in a shared spirit of innovation and knowledge creation in order to solve some our planets most pressing environmental, economic, and social challenges.We feel this community of visiting scholars and hosts represents a growing resource of collaborative potential that could greatly facilitate Purdue’s US-China research initiatives and help us to identify areas of research strength that span across multiple academic units of Purdue as well as numerous research programs in China. To develop our potential in this area, Purdue University has created the US-China Visiting Scholar Network Travel Grant Program. This initiative, administered by Purdue’s US-China EcoPartnership will help fund the reciprocal research stays of Purdue hosts or their students or post docs at the home institution of their current or recent Chinese visiting scholar.
This program will award up to $4,500 to support a Purdue host’s (graduate student/post-doctoral researcher) visit to the institution of the corresponding Chinese visiting scholar for a stay of no less than four weeks. The awards will be made through a competitive selection process. This program is financially supported by contributions from the centers of the Global Sustainability Institute, the Confucius Institute, International Programs, and the Colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Science, and Technology at Purdue.
Application Deadline: May 20, 2013
