About this funder:



AAS Council of Conferences (COC) Outreach Grants are made available to encourage education in Asian Studies.

Previously successful projects have included the organization of workshops and panels in conjunction with AAS Regional Conferences, the preparation of teaching materials, the compilation of source books, etc.

The COC encourages organizers of outreach activities to use, as appropriate, the resources available in the AAS teaching journal, Education About Asia. The use of grant money for registration waivers as a means of attracting annual conference attendance is not a high priority. Receipt of grant money does not preclude regional conferences from using other resources for this purpose.

AAS grants take the form of reimbursement rather than payment in advance, and only after workshop completion and COC grant report and reimbursement form/receipt submission.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • All worthy proposals are welcome, with the stipulation that they must be connected with and of benefit to the regional conference’s outreach endeavors. 
    • To ensure this, each proposal must be approved by the regional conference’s appointed outreach coordinator, regional conference chair, or regional president.
    • His/her signature must be included on the cover sheet of the proposal.
