Louise Wallace Hackney Flwp Study of Chinese Art

Scholarship Description

This award in the amount of $8,000 is open to post-doctoral as well as doctoral students.  It is conceived to permit the study of Chinese art, with special relation to painting and its reflection of Chinese culture, and to permit the translation into English of works upon the said subject for the purpose of furthering a better understanding of Chinese painting in the United States.  The Fellowship shall permit travel by those to whom an award is given, if such travel is possible.  This award is open only to individuals who are citizens of the United States, and while it is possible to apply for a renewal of this grant, it may not be done in consecutive years.  In no case shall a fellowship be awarded to scholars of well recognized standing, but shall be given to either men or women who show aptitude for promise in the said field of learning.  The aim of the Hackney Fellowship is to remind scholars that Chinese art, like all art, is not a disembodied creation, but the outgrowth of the life and culture from which it has sprung, and it is requested that scholars give special attention to this approach in their study.  Applicants should have completed three years study of the Chinese language or its equivalent and should be able to demonstrate that they have already committed themselves to the serious study of this important area of oriental art.
