2014-2015 Anne H. Scott Scholarship in Chinese Studies


The Institute of East Asian Studies is pleased to announce the guidelines for the 2014-15 Anne H. Scott Scholarship in Chinese Studies. This year, two awards of $3000 is available. This scholarship is for UC Berkeley undergraduates with an interest in Chinese history. The scholarship is made possible by a gift from Hugh A. Scott in memory of his late wife, Anne H. Scott (nee Hanrahan) and her work in Chinese history and translation. The scholarship is intended for students who have studied the Chinese language who wish to use their language training to study Chinese history or culture, conduct translation of historical works, or to write a thesis.

The guidelines and application form can be found on the IEAS website at http://ieas.berkeley.edu/resources/annehscott_2014.html. A flyer is also attached for display and forwarding.
