The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) is pleased to announce that the Henry Luce Foundation has just approved a major new grant, ensuring a continuation of ACMS's creative engagement with Mongolia, while also strengthening and deepening academic connections between the United States and Mongolia.

The $450,000 grant from the Luce Foundation is being launched in July 2018. As envisaged under the ACMS proposal, the grant will support the establishment of field schools in Mongolia, starting in summer 2019, providing opportunities for Mongolian and American students to work together in studying some of the key issues facing a rapidly changing Mongolia.

Under the terms of the agreement, ACMS will develop and implement several summer study programs over the next three years covering important themes, such as archaeology, renewable energy and history/geography.
