UNESCO has launched a call for young women and men under the age of 35 to apply for the 2021 ‘Silk Roads Youth Research Grant’. The grant aims to mobilize young researchers for further study of the Silk Roads shared heritage.

The panel will award the 12 grants valued at 10,000 USD based on the strengths of the proposed research and its potential contribution to furthering understanding of the interactions and exchanges taking place across the Silk Roads and the concrete elements resulting from them.

The deadline is on Sunday 18th April 2021.
