Six workshops on Asian Studies will be offered during the Spring semester of 2014. If you attend all six workshops, you will be required to submit a concrete plan at the end of the series explaining how you will incorporate the knowledge you have gained into your courses or work at SF. Those who participate in all six workshops will receive a stipend of $300.
