The Southeast Asia Fellowship Program

The East-West Center and the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) in Singapore are pleased to announce the Southeast Asia Fellowship Program. The program, funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, ISEAS Singapore, and East-West Center, is designed to offer young scholars from Southeast Asia the opportunity to undertake serious academic writing on the management of internal and international conflicts in the region and to contribute to the development of Southeast Asian studies in the Washington area by bringing Asian voices to bear on issues of interest to a Washington audience.

The annual fellowships will be awarded to two to three scholars and will finance two to three months of fieldwork in Southeast Asia, two months at ISEAS Singapore, and three months of residence at East-West Center in Washington, D.C. During the period in residence, the primary goal of the fellows is to complete a monograph or article that can be published in a peer-reviewed outlet. Fellows will also give one or two seminars sponsored by the East-West Center, partake in Southeast Asia related scholarly activities organized by other institutions, and interact with scholars and policy makers in Singapore and Washington D.C.

The fellowship award includes a small grant to cover field research, a stipend while in residence at ISEAS, a monthly stipend of US$3,500 to $4,000 while in residence in Washington, D.C., and round-trip economy airfare between the home country, Singapore, and Washington, D.C. When in residence, fellows will be provided office support including computer facilities and library access.
