Project Grants

Chinese students are introduced to the rigors ad rewards of cultural fieldwork

Chinese students are introduced to the rigors ad rewards of cultural fieldwork through the support of a United Board grant.

The United Board has long promoted whole person education in the tradition of the liberal arts colleges and universities in Asia.  Whole person education addresses the varied academic, professional, personal, and spiritual needs of students. It empowers students for their own personal and professional growth, and nurtures a sense of responsibility that encourages them to apply their knowledge in the service of others.

We welcome proposals that can show direct benefit to academic staff, enrich the teaching–learning process, and build the capacity of Asian institutions to design and deliver whole person education in innovative and effective ways. Prospective applicants should contact the individual responsible for their region to present their project concept before submitting a full proposal.

Project grant awards typically range from US$2,000 to US$25,000.
