Scholars of Chinese Studies are encouraged to apply for special summer travel grants designed to promote the use of the Canton Archives and Passionist China Collection at the Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History at the University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim.

Applications for travel grants to visit the USF Ricci Institute are welcome from scholars and researchers working on social, cultural, diplomatic, religious, economic, political, and architectural history from the 19th and 20th centuries (to 1950).

The Institute awards travel grants to qualified individuals engaged in scholarly research and writing whose work would be enhanced by using the Canton Archives and Passionist China Collection. Preference will be given to applicants with a record of previous publication, or those showing either
a strong potential for publication or use of the archival materials in a doctoral dissertation. Those with a plan for disseminating the research through publication, lecturing, etc. are particularly encouraged to apply. Travel grants are open to faculty members, postdoctoral scholars, and doctoral students.
