Call for Proposal: Research Grant under Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange
Scholars at academic institutions are eligible to apply for research grants. Priority will be given to collaborative projects involving institutions in Taiwan. Projects on Taiwan Studies are especially encouraged. Research grants are usually given for no more than two years.


The budget for research grants does not include salary for the researcher except for summer salary calculated at 1/9 of the scholar's annual salary. An average research grant might also include costs for research assistants, living costs, and travel expenses. To assist you with your research budget, you may wish to use the following guidelines for living costs abroad:

First month $120 a day
Thereafter $60 a day
Round trip costs from the East coast to East Asia are approximately $1,500.

  • Project abstract.
  • A detailed itemized budget (If this sum is to be supplemented by matching funds, please include this information in the budget).
  • A description of the proposed project of no more than 7 pages in length.
  • Curriculum vitae of the project director and all co-directors, including lists of publications over the last five years that are related to the proposed project.
  • Endorsement letter(s) from the project director and co-director(s) institution(s).
  • The Foundation's grants provide support for research on Chinese Studies in the humanities and social sciences.
  • Funding is not provided for capital equipment (including computers and printers), building design, construction, or maintenance.
  • Funding is not available for university administrative costs including overhead or endowments.
  • The Foundation does not subsidize administrative expenses or the purchase of equipment.
  • Foundation funds can only be transferred to and managed by institutional accounts. Endorsement letter(s) from the applicant's institution must express the institution's willingness to comply with these procedures.
  • With the exception of Scholar Grants, the Foundation does not supply funding for the salaries for project directors or co-directors.
  • The Foundation does not fund library acquisitions.
  • An applicant who already has a two-year research grant is not eligible to apply for a CCK Grant for Scholars that would run concurrently with the research grant. The research grant must end before an applicant can apply for a CCK Grant for Scholars.
  • The Foundation encourages applications with matching funds from other sources.
