IN-ASIA GRANTS

We will not be offering In-Asia Grants for the summer of 2021. We will announce updates in the coming months. Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate the impacts of Covid-19 on our programs. We encourage future prospective applicants to discuss ideas with Shansi staff.

Oberlin Shansi provides grants to Oberlin College & Conservatory students to promote individual and creative engagement with Asia. The purpose of these grants is to offer students funding for a Winter Term or summer project with a focus on a society and culture other than their own. The grants are up to $1,500 and must take place in East Asia, Southeast Asia or South Asia. Projects can include, but are not limited to, internships with non-governmental organizations and self-directed study. Only first, second, and third-year students as well as fourth-year double degree students are eligible for the grants. 

Within one month of the end of the project, the grant recipients are required to submit to Oberlin Shansi a short narrative report, no more than 2 pages, of the results of the project. Using the information in the report as a starting point, the recipient will also give a presentation of the project to their fellow students. Shansi will support you during the whole process of planning the presentation.

If you have any questions, please email us at shansi@oberlin.edu to schedule a meeting.
