Freer and Sackler Library

Travel Grant Program 2012
For Chinese and Japanese Art Studies

The Freer|Sackler Library Travel Grant Program 2012 assists students and scholars of Chinese and Japanese art residing outside the Washington, DC, metropolitan area who wish to use the library’s collections for their research. Funding for this program is provided by the Washington Art Library Resources Committee (WALRC).

Five grants of $1,000 each will be awarded on a competitive basis to graduate students and established East Asian art scholars. Travel grants are valid for one year from the date awarded.

The application deadline is June 1, 2012. Applicants for a travel grant are expected to provide a description of the project, including scope, research objectives, and anticipated results. They also are expected to provide a general budget and timeline estimate for their proposed visit to the Freer|Sackler Library. See the application form (PDF, 58kb) for more details on requirements.

Please email applications or any questions to Reiko Yoshimura, head librarian, at (Please enable javascript to view this email address).

As renovation work continues in the Freer Gallery, the Sackler Gallery also will close on July 10, 2017. This museum-wide closure will allow us to completely reinstall our exhibitions and revitalize features to improve your visit. Both spaces will reopen on October 14, 2017, when we will welcome the public back to the Freer|Sackler: two galleries, one destination. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes.
