Applicants will be assessed by a jury of curators, scholars, and other experts in the field on their knowledge of contemporary art in the Greater China region, relevant experience in the field, proposed methodology, and feasibility of the proposed research
Scope: Applicants are welcome to draw on AAA’s extensive collection of primary source documents from the Greater China region.

Budget: AAA will award one grant of US$15,000 (approx. HK$120,000), and up to two smaller grants of US$5,000 (approx. HK$40,000). Budgets should allow for a two-month residency in Hong Kong; research trips to relevant locations during the residency; and acquisition and production of new materials. Applicants are required to provide line item budgets with their proposals.
