2019-2020 UHM-Peking University Exchange Program

Dear Chinese Studies faculty and students:

Announcing the 2019–2020 UH–Peking University Exchange Program for UH Faculty & Ph.D. Students focusing on China.
The University of Hawai‘i has an agreement with Peking University—one of China’s oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher learning—to send UH faculty members or Ph.D. students there to teach, study, or conduct research. In return, the Center for Chinese Studies hosts Peking University faculty members here at UHM. 

CCS is now accepting applications from UHM faculty or Ph.D. students interested in spending part of 2019–2020 at Peking University. The program exchange year runs from June 1 of 2019 to May 31 of 2020. Please note that while all UHM faculty are eligible to apply, preference will be given to faculty and Ph.D. students whose research focuses on China. Housing and a stipend to cover meals in Beijing are provided by Peking University. International airfare, however, is not covered by the program. Application deadline is 5:00 p.m., January 25, 2019. Results of the competition are expected to be announced by the middle or end of February.
Please note, your actual dates of participation at Beida are subject to confirmation by Beida; and Beida will accept visiting scholars only if/when they have housing available. Therefore, successful applicants from UHM must confirm their desired arrival date with Beida as soon as possible upon hearing confirmation of award from us, and be prepared to modify their arrival date if so requested by Beida.

See attachment for application form and further details. Please use the form dated Jan 11, 2019 (attached), and not any of the previous years’ forms.
