In order to promote studies in Sinology, the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences (Belgium) has set up a Marthe Engelborghs-Bertels Fund.
The prize named “Marthe Engelborghs-Bertels Prize for Sinology” will be given to the author of a memoir of great scientific value, unpublished or published for less than three years, written in English, French, Dutch or German, on a subject related to the Chinese world in the broader sense of the word, i.e. continental China, Taiwan and Chinese diaspora.
The Prize, which amounts to 12,500 EUR, is intended for scientists coming from a European country who know Chinese or a language of the minorities living in China. These scientists should either have completed higher education studies in Belgium or in a member state of the European Union, or be attached to a higher education or research establishment located in a member state of the European Union.
The scientific work (six paper copies and one electronic version),a summary of 1,200 words maximum, a curriculum vitae and a cover letter shuld be sent to the Academy’s secretariat before 1 February 2018.
