International Interests

If you have international interests, there are a few ways of using keywords to find funding opportunities.

When searching for opportunities that require study, research, travel, or some other activity IN a foreign country or region, use the relevant country name or region of interest in the search. These keywords are located in the Geographic Location Topic Area. When searching for opportunities that require research or study ABOUT a foreign country or region, use the appropriate area studies keyword under the Area Studies Topic Area.

For example, if you were wanting to study Consumer Economics IN China, your key words would be: {China (Peoples Republic of)} or {Consumer Economics} - (33 results posted on 12/7/2005).

But if you were studying the Consumer Economics OF China, your key words would be: {Chinese Studies} or {Consumer Economics} - (28 results posted on 12/7/2005).

Some of these results may over-lap, because you could obviously study the Consumer Economics OF China IN China.
