The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Study Center in conjunction with the Department of Geography and Asian Studies Program at the College of Arts & Sciences is home to the Nila T. Gnamm Junior Faculty Research Fund. Each year, we invite proposals for funding from scholars affiliated with any department or academic program at UB to support research related to the Southeast Asia region. Small grants of between $500 and $2,000 will be awarded for expenses related to travel, conference presentation, library research, data collection, and other research costs. Funding could also support visiting scholars, conferences, workshops, lectures, and similar scholarly activity at UB that is related to the research of a faculty member or graduate student. For questions about the Fund, please contact Professor Jessie Poon.
