Singapore Asian Graduate Students Fellowship Programme 2009 2010

The Asia Research Institute of NUS
invites applications from citizens of Asian countries enrolled for a
fulltime advanced degree at a university in an Asian country (except
Singapore) for consideration
for the award of Asian Graduate Student Fellowships. These fellowships
are offered to current graduate students doing their Master’s or PhD
degrees and working in the Humanities and Social
Sciences on Southeast Asian topics, and will allow the recipients to be
based at NUS for an `in residence fellowship’ for a period of three
months. The aim of the fellowship is to enable scholars to
make full use of the wide range of resources held in the libraries of NUS and the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies

.
Scholars will be expected to commence on 4 May 2009, and to make a
presentation on their work at the Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast
Asian Studies
at the end of July 2009.

Successful candidates can expect the following benefits:

  • A monthly allowance of SGD$1,750 (inclusive of housing allowance).
  • A one time round trip travel subsidy by the most economical and
    direct route on a reimbursement basis upon being accepted for the
    fellowship.
  • Access to library and computer resources on campus.

Applicants are invited to e-mail/facsimile/mail their curriculum vitae, a 2-page outline of their research proposal in English
(this may be accompanied by a longer statement in a Southeast Asian
language) to the address below by 15 November 2008. Arrangements should
also be made by which at least two letters of reference, one of which
is from your principal supervisor, are sent confidentially to the same
address by the same deadline.

The 2-page research proposal must include the following details:

  • Whether the data collection or fieldwork stage of the research has already been completed;
  • how the fellowship will contribute to the research;
  • the types of sources to be consulted in Singapore;
  • proposed work plan during the fellowship.

You can look forward to excellent library and internet computer facilities at NUS’ main library (http://www.lib.nus.edu.sg/), the library at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS)
(http://www.iseas.edu.sg/library.html) and the Lee Kong Chian Reference Library at the National Library (http://www.nlb.gov.sg) to facilitate your research for the dissertation. NUS’ main library has
2 million volumes covering all topics while ISEAS’ library has 200,000
on Southeast Asian topics, half of which are in Southeast Asian
languages.
