Apply for EnviroLab Asia's Conference Travel Fund
EnviroLab Asia is a 5C initiative that seeks to advance scholarship on environmental issues in East and Southeast Asia. Recently, the Henry Luce Foundation awarded EnviroLab Asia a $1.4 million grant to expand its activities at the Claremont Colleges. One of the goals of EnviroLab Asia is to build networks of scholars interested in environmental issues in Asia.

5C faculty or students who are interested in attending a conference that addresses environmental issues in Asia may apply for funding to support the cost of travel. Applicants may be a conference presenter or participant. The fund covers travel costs (airfare, lodging, ground transportation, and per diem) for up to $1,500 per traveller. Upon return, we ask fund recipients to write a brief summary of their experience and how attending the conference added to their scholarship.

We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds, and strongly encourage applicants from the Sciences and/or non-Asian Studies backgrounds to apply.

We are accepting applications on a rolling-basis. We ask that the application be turned-in with adequate advanced notice. It is recommended that the application be turned in at least 4 weeks before travel to ensure reasonable travel rates and to provide enough time for EnviroLab Asia to review the application. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2018.

Applications will be evaluated based on the guiding principles of EnviroLab Asia, summarized below:
• Create a space for the production of new knowledge about the interaction between nature, the built environment, and human populations in Asia
• Utilize cross-disciplinary approaches
• Encourage 5C exchanges between and across campuses, utilize the current resources at the Claremont Colleges, and/or encourage community-building between and among 5C campus communities
• Increase faculty and students’ capacities to effectively influence debates on environmental issues as well as present innovative solutions to challenges resulting from environmental problems.

If you have any questions, please email Karin Mak, Project Administrator of EnviroLab Asia.
