Center for Asian Business Announces Faculty Research Grant Recipients

Since 2006, the Center for Asian Business has awarded research grants to LMU faculty. This year, three grants worth $5,000 were awarded to three 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 were welcome from LMU faculty 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.

The 2014 Summer Research Grant recipients are:

Charles Vance Ph. D., Professor of Management, will receive the Cheon Fellowship for his project: “Analysis of Linear/Nonlinear Thinking Style Profile and American Expatriate Adjustment in South Korea.”

Anatoly Zhuplev Ph.D., Professor of Management, will receive the Y.B. Min Fellowship for his project: “Korea's Energy Security in the Eurasian Context: Exploration of Drivers, Trends and Strategic Implications.”

Leon Wiebers, Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts and Dance Costume Designer, will receive the Moon Fellowship for his project: “History and Construction of Hanbok (Traditional Korean Dress).”

Congratulations to all the recipients!
