CFA The Jonathan T. Yeh Award for Student Scholarship in Asian and Asian
American Folklore [Deadline June 15, 2017]

The Transnational Asia/Pacific Section of the American Folklore Society is
proud to present the Jonathan T. Yeh Award for Student Scholarship in Asian
and Asian American Folklore. The award aims to foster and promote graduate
and undergraduate students in the early stages of their careers, encourage
advanced scholarly research and publication on Asian and/or Asian American
folklore subjects, and support AFS members who want to participate more
actively in the Society. The $500 prize winner will be announced at the AFS
annual meeting for the best student paper that contributes to Asian and/or
Asian American folklore studies through research and analysis.  It is
expected that the award recipient will present his/her paper at the AFS
annual conference.

The co-conveners of the Transnational Asia/Pacific Section will form the
committee, together with three additional members, including Dr. Nora Yeh,
who sponsors this award, to select the paper. At the time of submission,
the applicant must be a registered full-time graduate or undergraduate
student. He or she may be enrolled in any discipline in any U.S. or
international academic institution. The work must show compelling prospects
for the publication of his or her scholarly work and demonstrate a
dedication to research and/or teaching folklore studies. All applications
must include a one-page cover letter describing the applicant's background
and current activities, indicating why the applicant deserves consideration
for this award; a one-page CV; a 10-12 page research paper, double-spaced
(approximately 2500 words); and one letter of recommendation from an
academic institution or equivalent, sent under separate cover (e-mail
