IAAS Research Fellowship Program

The Institute for Asian American Studies (IAAS) brings together resources and expertise from both the campus and the community to conduct research on Asian Americans, promote Asian American community development, and support Asian American studies on campus.

In 1994, the IAAS established a Research Fellows Program. The program provides small grants funding to faculty, graduate students, and other researchers who conduct a study on Asian American issues. Each Fellow is required to present his or her research at a public forum at the University of Massachusetts Boston and to submit a manuscript for publishing. Learn more at
