Result: Jinmotang 2014 History of Chinese Calligraphy Research Scholarship Programme


During the two-month application period for the 2014 Chinese Calligraphy Research Scholarship Programme, Jinmotang Calligraphy Research Foundation takes great pleasure in receiving all the applications and complete dissertations and we are pleased to announce the final result of the Programme.

We are thankful for all the generosity of the donation of all publications and the attention on our Foundation's news. Having received 12 applications, we are impressed by those high-quality dissertations with much academic value. Eventually 4 applications could go into the last stage of assessment. After the long-awaited examination, the board of academic committee finally announced 3 essays, namely "Collection of Letters of Qing dynasty in South Korean" (by Miss Qian Jin Mei), "Research on writers of bamboo manuscripts in Qin and Han dynasty" (by Mr. Wang Xiao Guang) and "Research on collection of inscribed tiles and related art activities of Wu Chang Shuo" (by Mr. Mei Song), to be awarded this year. We sincerely offer our hearty congratulations to the awardees.

To sum up the comments on the awarded dissertations, the academic committee applauded the research value of "Collection of Letters of Qing dynasty in South Korean". Considered a group of rare manuscripts written by the literati in Qing dynasty, the letters contain loads of unknown messages in political terms between the Chinese and Korean in the late 19th century; "Research on writers of bamboo manuscripts in Qin and Han dynasty" is well-organised. The Author, Wang Xiao Guang, is knowledgeable about Chinese ancient history and literary; "Research on collection of inscribed tiles and related art activities of Wu Chang Shuo" was considered an important part of Wu's studies that lends a fresh perspective to the subject.

Your participation and devotion would be greatly appreciated. The foundation is looking forward to more applicants for the forthcoming Chinese Calligraphy Research Sponsorship Programme in 2015. Also, you are more than welcome to spread widely the foundation's news. The more participants involved in our programme, the more we could offer and support.
