Apply Now for Spring 2021 Awards

Deadline: March 1, 2021

GHF is now accepting applications for projects and publication subventions (including the open-access publication of new and previously published works).

Project awards fund scholarly activities that confirm GHF’s mission, such as academic conferences, workshops, exhibitions, performances, and more. Projects that make possible the sharing of Ming scholarship during the pandemic are strongly encouraged.

Subvention awards support not-for-profit academic presses in publishing books that align with the Geiss Hsu Foundation’s mission and goals. We are now accepting applications to make new and previously published works open access.
