Application Deadline: Yamaguchi Opportunity Fund @ Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center

The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at UM is once again offering UM faculty members support in Asian-related research through the Yamaguchi Opportunity Fund.

Each fall and spring semester, the generous support of Akira Yamaguchi allows the University to offer between $500 and $1,000 to faculty from any department or school for Asian studies research and curriculum development related to Asia. Past awards have been given to faculty from history and political science, communications, sociology and anthropology. Supported activities include research-related travel, scholarly publications, conference participation and essential research materials.

Preference is given to full-time, pre-tenure faculty members, although other faculty will be considered.

Interested faculty should submit a two-page proposal detailing the cost breakdown for and nature of their request, and also explain the impact the support will have on their research or teaching. The proposal must include a letter from a colleague in the field who is familiar with the applicant’s work and able to assess the merits of the research.

The application deadline is Monday, Nov. 26, and awards will be announced in early December. Applications can be submitted to Caitlin Sager, Mansfield Center administrative assistant, at caitlin.sager@mso.umt.edu.
