Responsive Grants

Responsive Grants provide opportunities to build knowledge and increase understanding of East and Southeast Asia through scholarship and exchange, with an emphasis on strengthening capacity in the United States. They typically support research and training, the creation of scholarly and public resources, and intellectual and cultural exchange between Americans and Asians.

Special Initiatives

The Asia Program frequently runs multi-year grants competitions on specific issues, themes or fields relevant to the study of Asia.

The newest initiative is the Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA), which was approved by the Foundation's Directors in June 2018. Details about the aims of the competition and complete application guidelines can be found on the initiative homepage. Read more about LuceSEA.
