Generally, a research is a quest for knowledge through experimentation, investigation and diligent search. It is aimed at discovery and interpretation of new knowledge or at resolving debatable existing knowledge. There are systematic procedures and methods for explorations, targeted at obtaining new knowledge. At the level of professional education, we have a pursuance for learning more and looking beyond what is written, and contributing a little to the field we plan to dedicate our lives to. The starting point of a research is to think of a good idea. Your research is as good as your idea.
About: Funded by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, ACLS invites applications for grants to support collaborative work in China studies. In this cycle of competitions we are soliciting proposals in the humanities and related social sciences that adopt an explicitly cross-cultural or comparative perspective. We invite submission of projects that, for example, compare aspects of Chinese history and culture with those of other nations and civilizations, explore the interaction of these nations and civilizations, or engage in cross-cultural research on the relations among the diverse and shifting populations of China. Proposals are expected to be empirically grounded, theoretically informed, and methodologically explicit.
