Event description

Description

Are you looking for funding to support your research on China? What is the best strategy to follow? Do you want to discuss your funding questions with experienced speakers and a peer group who have gone through the same process?

This event provides graduate students and early career researchers, as well as more seasoned academics who are currently doing China-related research with insights into the process of seeking, applying for, and securing funding. The speakers will not only provide an overview of resources you can use before and after you submit your applications, but will also share their expertise, personal experiences, challenges and success stories. Speakers will share useful tips to help you find out how best to secure funding for your China-related research, making the application process less stressful.
