Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange

The Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Taipei, the capital of the Republic of China on Taiwan. It also maintains a regional office in McLean, Virginia near Washington D.C. in the United States. In 1987, a group of professors of Chinese descent at major American universities wrote a joint letter to President Chiang Ching-kuo expressing their concern about the gradual decline of programs of Chinese Studies in overseas academic institutions. They suggested that, given the increased prosperity of the country, a foundation for international scholarly exchange should be established to support and promote the understanding of Chinese culture and society overseas. Today the Foundation awards Research Grants, Fellowship Grants, Conference/Workshop Grants, Publication Subsidies, and Doctoral Fellowships. The Foundation's grants provide support for research on Chinese Studies in the humanities and social sciences providing differing amounts of funding depending on the grant.
