Books for Peaceful Purposes

Apply for Chinese teaching resources through Books for Peaceful Purposes (BPP), a Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies (LRCCS) educational outreach fellowship that allows teachers to self select materials for their specific pedagogical needs.

In an era of globalization and a burgeoning interest in China, teachers need up-to-date curriculum resources to meet language, literature and world history standards. Choose books, film, and media for the classroom that promote the knowledge and understanding of greater China.  In exchange for book awards, we ask recipients to provide bibliographies and/or lesson ideas which can be shared with other teachers in a growing network of Asia-educators and leaders in the field.

Qualified educators can receive funding grants for teaching materials through Books for Peaceful Purposes totaling up to $300.00 each academic year. BPP applications will be evaluated once in the Winter (deadline December 21) and once in the Spring (deadline March 31).  Teachers may submit up to two applications in any given academic year if they do not exceed the full $300.  Book orders will be processed only at these times—additional titles or materials are welcomed for consideration but will not be processed intermittently throughout the year.
