Regional Committees


@The Foundation's principal work is to award grants, as approved by the Board of Directors, to institutions and individuals conducting China-related research and academic ventures. All proposals received by the Foundation are reviewed both by experts in appropriate fields as well as by the respective Review Committee for each of the four regions. This two-tiered evaluation process ensures that each application receives full and unbiased scrutiny. Review committees consist of leading scholars and social scientists in various fields of Sinology, who served fixed terms of two years, after which one-third of the committee members are rotated. There are four Review Committees in these four regions: the North American region, the European region, the Asia-Pacific region, and the Domestic region. After the review committee ranks proposals, they are submitted to the Board of Directors for final approval according to the availability of the year's funding budget.
