UNESCO calls for application for the 2021 Silk Roads Youth Research Grant. The research grant which is open to young postgraduate scholars (men and women) not more than 35 years of age at the time of application comes with $10,000 (USD) cash grant.

Proposed research may cover any of a number of themes associated with the Silk Roads shared heritage in the following areas and more;

  •      Science and Technology
  •     Traditional Knowhow and Craftsmanship
  •     Religion and Spirituality
  •     Language and Literature
  •     Arts and Music
  •     Traditional Sports and Games

“However, proposed research must focus on the results of cultural interactions and exchanges, and within a given field must showcase the concrete resulting elements, be they tangible or intangible, as identifiable in two or more cultures along the Silk Roads and beyond. Research may be interdisciplinary in approach, and where possible, provide dynamic and novel ideas on the processes of exchange and transformation along the Silk Roads and its meaning and value in contemporary societies.”

The deadline for proposals is 18 April 2021, after which the grant awardees will be announced at the end of June 2021 following the evaluation process by the scientific panel composed of renowned international academics.

Proposals should be submitted in English and sent by e-mail to: [email protected]
