The second offering of TIRF’s Masters Research Grants (MRG) program is now open. In 2020, the Foundation will consider research proposals from students enrolled in masters programs at universities in Chinese-speaking contexts, including individuals living in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.

There are two levels of MRGs that will be offered this year:

  • Level-One Grants: These awards target students who have been admitted to MA programs and have had their MA thesis research proposals approved by their supervisor or supervisory committee.
  • Level-Two Grants: These awards target MA students who received funding at the first level, have completed their research, and wish to disseminate their results at well-known conferences.

TIRF would like to thank its partner, Words Up Your Way (WUYW), for its generous support of this year’s program.

Proposals and supervisors’ letters of support are due by Thursday, April 23, 2020. Please click here to learn more.
