Malatesta Scholarships

 

The Ricci Institute awards Malatesta Scholarship(s) each year ($1000 to $4000) to honor the memory of Rev. Edward J. Malatesta, founding director of the Ricci Institute, for his contributions to the history of Chinese-Western cultural exchange, and to promote research by Chinese scholars on topics related to the history of Christianity in China.

 

Scholarships are awarded to young Chinese scholars in the People’s Republic of China to assist them in the completion of advanced study (doctoral and postdoctoral level work) on the topic of Christianity in China. Scholarship awards may be used to cover research, travel, and lodging expenses in China and abroad. Funds may not be used for tuition or computer/camera equipment.
