Faculty Funding

The Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies provides funding for initiatives by Faculty Fellows in support of the Institute’s mission of developing Asia-related programming for the Notre Dame community. At this time, faculty may apply for funding for Asia-related programming such as cultural events (including guest speakers and performers), research conferences, and individual research projects.

Preference is given for proposals that can engage audiences with interests across different disciplines and/or across different regions of Asia. However, we are always be happy to support single-discipline or single-region events whenever possible.


Faculty applying for funding from the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies must be Fellows of the Institute. They are highly encouraged to seek supplementary support from their home departments and other units on campus in conjunction with funding requests made to the Institute. Proposed activities must be related to Asia and aligned with the Institute’s mission.


Proposals will be reviewed by the Institute’s Director, Executive Director, and at least one member of the Institute Steering Committee on an ad hoc basis. Funding will be awarded based on the quality of the proposal, relevance of the activity to the mission of the Institute, and budgetary appropriateness.


Please direct any questions you may have to the associate director, Patrick Deegan (pdeegan1@nd.edu, x4409). Fellows applying for funding are encouraged to contact the associate director to discuss the proposed activity prior to submitting a proposal.
