Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues in universities and public research in Greater China. Colleague(s) in Greater China must be identified in the proposal. The average award is $30,000 but larger, high impact projects will be favored.
Priority will be given to projects that:
- propose a balanced exchange between the two teams
- demonstrate complementarity between the two teams
