The C.V. Starr Fund for Asian/Pacific/American Research awards grants to NYU students, NYU adjunct faculty members, and A/P/A Institute visiting scholars working on academic and/or community projects with particular emphasis on the New York metropolitan region. The goal of this fund is to promote a convergence of theory and practice in Asian/Pacific/American Studies and its related fields by providing financial support for research expenses and/or conference participation.
The C.V. Starr Fund for Asian/Pacific/American Research is administered by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, which provides a space for the sharing of scholarship, art, activism, and other cultural and political exchanges about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in New York City and beyond.
NYU students, NYU adjunct faculty members, and A/P/A Institute visiting scholars may apply for up to $1,000 to support one of the following:
- Field work and research
- Conference and symposium participation
Recipients may be awarded the grant up to two times.
