YCAR invites applications for 2020 Canada-China Initiative Fund call for proposals

York Centre for Asian Research YCAR

The York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) invites applications from York University faculty and graduate students for the 2020 Canada-China Initiatives Fund call for proposals.

Founded in 2019, the Canada-China Initiatives Fund (CCIF) was created to support scholarly exchanges and research on modern (i.e. post 1911) and contemporary China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan and their global outreach or Canada-China linkages, or the experiences of the Chinese-Canadian community.

In recognition of the current global circumstances due to COVID-19, YCAR is only inviting applications for virtual events for this round of applications.

Virtual talks, workshop, seminars, conferences or related activities held between Aug. 1 and June 30, 2021 to communicate with peers and/or wider publics and share knowledge with researchers elsewhere that are focused on themes within the scope of the initiative qualify for the fund.

While virtual activities as listed above will be given priority in this round, applications for research, specifically research projects by York faculty on issues within the stated scope, will also be considered.

The CCIF at YCAR Committee is responsible for the Fund and will adjudicate this opportunity. The deadline for applications is July 22.
