The Silk Roads Youth Research Grant
The Silk Roads Youth Research Grant is an initiative first launched in 2021 aiming to mobilize young researchers for further study of the Silk Roads shared Heritage. Every year 12 research grants (one per research project) will be awarded to young women and men under 35 years of age, inviting them to address specific issues relating to the Silk Roads shared heritage and plural identities, as well as its internal diversity, and its potential in contemporary societies for creativity, intercultural dialogue, social cohesion, regional and international cooperation, and ultimately sustainable peace and development. Postgraduate researchers aged 35 and younger at the time of application are eligible to apply for the grant. The proposed research may be carried out by an individual researcher or may be part of a group or collaborative project.
The call for proposals of the third edition of the Silk Roads Youth Research Grant is now open.
