FASIC announce the successful scholars who have been awarded the inaugural BHP Billiton Australia China Scholarships

The Foundation for Australian Studies in China (FASIC) is delighted to announce the successful scholars who have been awarded the inaugural BHP Billiton Australia China Scholarships.  The focus areas of these BHP Billiton Australia China Scholars cover such areas as economics, international economics & trade, transactional law and Australian literature.   FASIC sendsits warmest congratulations to the four young scholars from Australia and China for their academic excellence and their strong desire to contribute to the deepening of the Australia China relationship.  Well done to the inaugural group of BHP Billiton Australia China Scholars! Andrew SASSE Area of Interest: Economics As a BHP Billiton Australia China Scholarship awardee, I have been given a unique opportunity in an incredible frontier that I'm very grateful to have a chance to participate. China is building its reputation as an attractive destination for students from around the world. This scholarship shall provide valuable support and encouragement to many students like me. Prospective students in Australia are looking to expand their horizons via an enriched global postgraduate opportunity, which this program provides. I will deepen my knowledge of Economics and am excited to follow my interests in this field in China. My hopes and expectations are that my study will help me to positively influence Australia's interests with China.   Daniel TRAVERS Area of Interest: International Economics and Trade As a very fortunate recipient of a BHP Billiton Australia China Scholarship, I have the opportunity to study International Economics and Trade in Chinese as a visiting student at Renmin University in Beijing. The scholarships provide students and young professionals with an interest in the Australia-China relationship with a fantastic opportunity to undertake study, research and gain experience in China in a range of areas. I am very grateful to both BHP Billiton and the Foundation for Australian Studies in China (FASIC) for this opportunity, and would strongly encourage other students and young professionals who have an interest in the Australia-China relationship to apply for a BHP Billiton Australia China Scholarship in the future. Update: Daniel completed his study at Renmin University in February 2017 and returned to Australia where he is now working as a geologist. He finds his experiences in China gave him a unique insight into the Chinese economy and Chinese culture, and also the relationship between China and the Australian mining industry. Click here to read Daniel's short report on his study experiences in China.   Paris BALL Area of Interest: Transnational Law I will be enrolling in Peking University's School of Transnational Law Master's Program. This program will greatly aid me in receiving a world-class legal education in Chinese and transnational law that I can apply to my research on international investment regulation. Gaining a sophisticated understanding of Chinese law will aid me in researching Chinese approaches to investment regulations and its implications for the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement. I believe that there needs to be more research on the overlapping obligations that arise from Australia's commitments to the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. As part of my Master's Program, I will be writing a research paper on the implications Australia's obligations under these agreements have for Australia's relationship with China in international investment. This scholarship will provide me with a once in a lifetime opportunity to further my academic and professional career in understanding the Australia-China relationship in international investment.     Yan ZHANG Area of Interest: Australian Literature As an English teacher at a University in China, I took Australian Literature as my field of research during my postgraduate study in Shanghai. My supervisor was Professor Yuanshen Huang, the most eminent Australian studies scholar in China. Since I completed my study and acquired my MA degree, I have always desired to further my study. I applied for a BHP Billiton Australia China Scholarship delivered by FASIC; and meanwhile, applied for a PhD place in Edith Cowan University in Australia. With the support of the scholarship, I will able to begin my PhD research of Australian Literature in ECU with Dr. Ffion Murphy and Professor Glen Philips. I am grateful that I have been chosen as one of the scholarship awardees. I treasure this great opportunity and will make my best effort to further my understanding of Australian Literature and to share my knowledge to younger generations. Update: Yan is now in her first year of PhD at the Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Western Australia. She is enjoying having almost the whole corpus of Australian literary works readily available and the excitement and challenges that exploring Australian literature brings to her. With her PhD colleagues come from different places of the world including some local scholar from Australia, she is making friends with multicultural background. Yan is a keen participant in diverse activities and academic workshops at ECU. Yan has found ECU staff very friendly and helpful of her work and everyday life. She is adapting well as an international student in Australia.

2017Programs

  GUIDELINES FOR THE 2017 AUSTRALIAN STUDIES IN CHINA PROGRAM (2017 ASP) Australia China Council (ACC) and Foundation for Australian Studies in China (fasic) The 2017 ASP is supported by the Australian Government through the ACC of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The ACC has been supporting Australian Studies in China for decades through a variety of initiatives. In 2011, the ACC supported the creation of FASIC as an independent not-for-profit organisation registered in Australia. FASIC has the ability to raise funds from the private sector to support initiatives which deepen awareness of Australia in China across a range of disciplines and fields of study, including Australian Studies in China. FASIC initiated and supports the BHP Chair of Australian Studies at Peking University and has provided funding to Australian Studies programs throughout China. The ACC and FASIC play a significant role in the promotion of Australian Studies in China and seek to further expand and strengthen research and teaching collaboration between Australian and Chinese universities. FASIC, with the support of the ACC, also provides grants and scholarships to Australian and Chinese academics and professionals. PROJECT BACKGROUND FASIC has assumed responsibility for the administration of ASP, which was previously administered for the ACC by the University of Queensland under the leadership by Professor David Carter. Funding for the ASP was historically provided by the ACC, while in recent years, FASIC has assumed the primary funding role. The ACC will continue to provide significant funding to the ASP. In order to help shape the future of the ASP, FASIC formed an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) to recommend changes to the program in order to better serve all stakeholders.   FUNDING CATEGORIES  Based on the recommendations of the AAC and having considered feedback relating to 2016 ASP, the 2017 ASP will continue to focus on three categories of activities, outlined below.

Programs

GUIDELINES FOR 2016 AUSTRALIAN STUDIES IN CHINA PROGRAM (2016 ASP) Australia China Council (ACC) and Foundation for Australian Studies in China (fasic) The ACC is a body under the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.  The ACC has been supporting Australian Studies in China for decades through a variety of initiatives.  In 2011, the ACC supported the creation of FASIC as an independent not-for-profit organisation registered in Australia. FASIC has the ability to raise funds from the private sector to support initiatives which deepen awareness of Australia in China across a range of disciplines and fields of study, including Australian Studies in China  FASIC initiated and supports the BHP Billiton Chair of Australian Studies at Peking University and has provided funding to Australian Studies programs throughout China.  The ACC and FASIC play a significant role in the promotion of Australian Studies in China and seek to further expand and strengthen research and teaching collaboration between Australian and Chinese universities. FASIC, with the support of the ACC, also provides grants and scholarships to Australian and Chinese academics and professionals. PROJECT BACKGROUND FASIC has assumed responsibility for the administration of ASP, which was previously administered for the ACC by the University of Queensland under the leadership by Professor David Carter.  Funding for the ASP was historically provided by the ACC, while in recent years, FASIC has assumed the primary funding role.  The Australia China Council will continue to provide significant funding to the ASP.  In order to help shape the future of the ASP, FASIC formed an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) to recommend changes to the program in order to better serve all stakeholders. FUNDING CATEGORIES Based on the recommendations of the AAC, the 2016 ASP will focus on three categories of activities, outlined below, as well as an Australian Studies Journal. CATEGORY 1: COMPETITIVE PROJECTS FOR RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT (a) GUIDELINES The Program seeks to encourage high quality, original research by Chinese academics and graduate students and to support the teaching of Australian Studies in Chinese universities. The Research and Curriculum Developments grants scheme is available to individuals or collaborative teams for specific projects to be undertaken in the forthcoming year. Research: the Research and Curriculum Development grants are open to graduate students as well as academic staff. At least half of the annual funding is reserved for projects which include research in Australia. Applicants need to demonstrate how their research will contribute new knowledge to the Australian Studies field in China and engage with existing scholarship. Curriculum Development: a small amount of funding is reserved to provide assistance to develop new courses and programs in Australian Studies or add new Australian content to existing courses in Chinese universities. Applicants needs to demonstrate that facilities are in place for the new course/program to be implemented in their school/department. Requests for purchasing resources (books and other research or teaching materials) can be included in applications. These requests must be linked to a specific research project or curriculum development initiative. All books and other resources purchased with grant money should be given to the relevant Australian Studies Centre once the project is completed. Successful applications will be granted with up to AU$6,000 each. Centres can also bid for building a small collection or ‘library’ in a centre with priority areas for teaching/research needs. Funded up to AU$1,000. (b) APPLICATION FORM     Click here for a Word version of the application form for Competitive Projects for Research and Curriculum Development. CATEGORY 2: COLLABORATIVE INITIATIVES FOR AUSTRALIAN STUDIES CENTRES (a) GUIDELINES China now has a large number of well-established and very capable Australian Studies Centres which teach and conduct research across a wide range of disciplines.  The purpose of this new fund is to support collaborative initiatives between Australian Studies Centres in China.  While applications from single Centres may be considered, preference will be given to collaborative projects involving more than one Australian Studies Centre. Such projects may include conferences, workshops, post-graduate training programs, high profile public events, significant translation projects, high profile events and competitions or the creation of new teaching resources, or other initiatives which advance Australian Studies in China. To be considered eligible for this fund, a centre must be registered with the Chinese Australia Studies Association. Australian Studies Journal. The proposal is to establish a high-quality leading journal for Chinese scholars and students to publish their papers on Australian Studies. Preference would be for it to be hosted by an institution in China in collaboration with Australian Studies Association. Continuity in quality control is desired – minimum undertaking by the chosen host institution should be 3 years. The journal may have an online platform to allow quicker online access for a larger number of papers such as the ones from the conferences.   Centres can also bid for the production of a hard copy publication related to the biennial conference under this category. Successful applications will be granted with up to AU$10,000 each. (b) APPLICATION FORM     Click here for a Word version of the application form for Collaborative Initiatives for Australian Studies Centres. CATEGORY 3: INTERNAL TRAVEL GRANTS (a) GUIDELINES This program is to facilitate visits between centres in China for collaborations within/involving ASC network and/or to consult resources held in other centres or university libraries. This is for post grad and early career academics and the focus should be research and/or curriculum development. Successful applications will be granted with up to AU$1,500 each.
