Brown is home to a number of Masters and Doctoral programs that engage with East Asia.  The graduate community in recent years has included Ph.D. students whose work focuses on East Asia in American Studies, Anthropology,  Comparative Literature, History, History of Art and Architecture, Religious Studies, and Sociology.  

They have helped compile an archive of sources for grants and fellowships, some of them tied specifically to research in or about East Asia, while others support travel, conference participation, and research more generally.  This collection is by no means exhaustive, and we cannot guarantee that the deadlines that appear here are accurate in every case.
