The Esherick-Ye Family Foundation is pleased to announce the results of its 2020 competition for small grants of up to $5,000 to support projects in modern Chinese economic,  social, and political history or archaeology.  Due to the global pandemic, most recipients were forced to defer their grants.  Those who were able to accept their awards in 2020 are listed below.
