Luce Initiative on East and Southeast Asian Archaeology and Early History

Approved by the Foundation's Directors in June 2005, the Luce Initiative on East and Southeast Asian Archaeology and Early History was a five-year field development initiative conducted in partnership with the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).

The final awards through this program were made in June 2010 and proposals are no longer being accepted. The goals of this initiative have been to train the next generation of specialists, strengthen institutional programs, and support innovative research. The initiative has also aimed to foster links between Asian and North American scholars, and promote wider visibility and public appreciation of this subject.

The program had two parallel competitions: (1) institutional grants to invited North American universities and museums, managed by the Foundation’s Asia Program, and (2) individual fellowships and grants for graduate students and scholars from Asia and North America, administered by ACLS.

Over its five years of activity, the Archaeology Initiative invested close to $11 million in support of 17 institutional grants (ten new faculty positions and seven collaborative research projects) and 130 individual fellowship awards.
