The Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange (the Foundation) is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Taipei, the capital of the Republic of China on Taiwan.

The Foundation's grants provide support for research on Chinese Studies in the humanities and social sciences:
- Research Grants: Scholars at academic institutions are eligible to apply for research grants. Researchers focusing on the social, cultural, economic or political development of Taiwan over the past few decades are especially encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to collaborative projects with scholars in Taiwan. Research grants are usually given for no more than two years.
- Fellowship Grants
- CCK Distinguished Fellowships: No more than two grants each year will be awarded to distinguished full professors. Each grant provides up to $50,000 to help replace half of the salary of faculty on sabbatical, or for time off for research and writing. If grants from other sources are also awarded to the applicant, the Foundation’s grant, when added to the others, should not exceed the recipient’s annual salary. Applications should be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from the chairman of the department, the dean of the college, or the provost of the university.
