Faculty Research Fellowship Grants
Since 2006, the Center for Asian Business has awarded 21 research grants to LMU faculty. Three grants worth $5,000 each are being awarded in 2017 for tenured track faculty with at least one year of teaching experience at LMU. Consistent with the center's mission, these endowed research fellowships were established to deepen our understanding of Asian culture, history, politics, religions, economics and business.
Applications are welcome from LMU faculty who may be interested in Asian topics suggested by the donating families. Although research may address broader Asian topics, topics related to Korea will be given special consideration.
