Fellowships to USA and International scholars, artists, and arts professionals to undertake study, research, and exploration trips. Funding is intended to allow individuals from Hong Kong SAR, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Macau SAR, to travel to the United States, and for US applicants to travel to these countries. Dissertation research is also supported in this category with partial funding offered for up to one year.
Since its inception in 1963 as the Asian Cultural Program of the JDR 3rd Fund, ACC has operated a program of long-term, immersive fellowships and shorter-term grants for individual artists, scholars, and arts professionals who wish to pursue specialized training not available in their home countries; find new creative inspiration through travel, research, and exploration; or pursue targeted research projects aligned with ACC's mission of advancing international understanding.
In addition to funding, ACC offers Fellows logistical and programmatic support. The level of support will vary according to the needs of a given proposal and ACC’s resources in the destination country. Support may include recommendations of sites to visit or activities to participate in, and personal introductions to relevant contacts within ACC’s network of alumni and partners throughout Asia and the U.S. This network is particularly strong where ACC has offices: Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, and the U.S.
Programmatic support is intended to enhance a proposed plan of activity and deepen the cultural exchange experience, but proposals should be feasible with or without additional guidance from ACC.
