We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new graduate student fellowship in honor of Richard B. and Virginia Mather. Richard and Ginny have been dear colleagues and good friends through the many manifestations of Asian studies at the University of Minnesota over the last 60 years.
In his research and teaching Richard ranged broadly through the literatures of Asia, primarily those in Chinese, but also Japanese and Sanskrit. It is particularly appropriate that this new fellowship will be available to graduate students in our new Ph.D. program in Asian literature, cultures and media.
Your generosity will help ensure our ability to attract the best and brightest Mather Fellows, who like Richard, will advance the knowledge of Asian languages and literatures. Make a gift to the Department of Asian Languages and Literatures online through the University of Minnesota Foundation.
