Application Deadline Extended l The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Greater China Research Grant 2016

The application deadline has been extended to 30 November 2016, 6pm HKT.

Last call for proposals for Asia Art Archive’s (AAA) The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Greater China Research Grant. With support from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, the grant offers one-year fellowships to up to three individuals to study the AAA collection and develop historical research projects on topics relating to contemporary art in Mainland China, Taiwan, Macau, and Hong Kong.

With a panel of judges, including curators and scholars in the field, AAA will assess applicants based on their knowledge of contemporary art in the Greater China region, relevant experience in the field, proposed methodology, and research feasibility.



Applicants are welcome to draw on AAA’s extensive collection of primary source documents from the Greater China region, and are encouraged to propose their own topics. Applicants can develop research proposals that explore specific periods of time, themes, or phenomena in contemporary art from a broad Chinese context.

Eligible Applicants

Postgraduates (including pre-doctoral fellows) with a research focus on contemporary art or Greater China studies, and independent scholars and writers with solid research and publication track records.

Project Completion

The selected project is expected to begin in Dec 2016 and to complete by Dec 2017.

The top grantee will be required to submit interim reports updating AAA on his or her progress. Upon completion, the top grantee must submit to AAA all documents and original materials collected during the course of the project, a written paper, a complete bibliography, and an inventory of collected materials. The project will conclude with two public presentations by the grantee in Jan–Feb 2018 (one at AAA, Hong Kong).

Runner(s)-up will be required to submit a final paper and give a public presentation in Hong Kong or their relevant city.

Applicants are required to provide tentative timelines for the project.


AAA will award US$15,000 (approx. HK$120,000) to the top grantee. Budgets should allow for a two-month residency in Hong Kong; research trips to Mainland China, Taiwan, and/or Macau during the AAA residency; and acquisition of new materials.

Up to two runners-up will be awarded US$5,000 (approx. HK$40,000) each for their research projects.

Applicants are required to provide line item budgets with their proposals.
