EALC Development Fund
This fund provides support for the department's academic mission in flexible ways: to reward outstanding performance in on-campus language study not covered by a dedicated fund (i.e., Japanese and Korean), to defray the travel expenses of graduate students who present papers at conferences, to support faculty when their teaching and research activities incur expenses that are not covered by limited university resources, for extra-curricular cultural functions, and other such events and materials that support our academic mission.
You may help us to recognize and reward our most outstanding students via the following award funds:
Andrew and Lily Tsubaki Award
E. John Niswander Memorial Fund
Grace Wan Award
Mary and Joseph Kuo Chinese Studies Scholarship
This fund is given annually to one intermediate or advanced level student who demonstrates exceptional talent and expresses a commitment to continue his or her Chinese studies at the University of Kansas or in graduate studies.
