Geiss-Hsu Foundation Scholarship


In 2022, Geiss-Hsu Foundation Scholarships will be awarded to ten students of books and printing in the Ming world. Each scholarship covers full-tuition for one of Rare Book School’s courses on Asian books, including:

Eligible applicants include professionals whose work focuses primarily on the study or care of cultural artifacts from East Asia, as well as non-specialists who wish to develop an interest in this area.

Recipients are expected to submit a brief report reflecting on their course experience and its relation to their research and professional endeavors; reports should be directed to rbs_scholarships@virginia.edu within two weeks of the course.

The Geiss-Hsu Foundation Scholarship was made possible in part by an award from the James P. Geiss and Margaret Y. Hsu Foundation.
