The YCAR Research Dissemination Fund provides support for activities that promote or disseminate research by YCAR faculty and graduate associates. These activities may include (but are not limited to): short video documentaries summarizing research projects/findings; video recordings of research presentations; book or other publication launches; community-based knowledge mobilization events; or, web archiving of research materials. The fund is intended to support the dissemination of completed research, not to support research itself or publication expenses.

Requests are invited from Faculty and Graduate Associates who wish to propose a research dissemination activity.  Funding support will usually be in the range of $200 to $1,000.  The selection process will apply the following criteria:

  • the proposed research dissemination project should report on a substantive piece of research that focuses on Asia or Asian Diaspora;
  • a rationale should be provided for the importance of the proposed dissemination channel;
  • preference will be given to research that has been administered through YCAR.

The deadlines for applications are as follows: 15 March; 15 May; 15 July; 15 September; 15 November.
