Asian Graduate Student Fellowships 2017 (6 weeks In-residence)

Deadline               : 30 Desember 2016
Dana dan Biaya    : Full Gratis  



Sarjanamuda.com -The Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications from citizens of Asian countries currently enrolled in a fulltime Master’s or PhD degree at a university in an Asian country (except Singapore) for consideration for the award of Asian Graduate Student Fellowships. Offered to graduate students working in the Humanities and Social Sciences on Southeast Asian topics, the fellowship will allow the recipients to be based at NUS for an ‘in residence fellowship’ for a period of six (6) weeks.

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. Please note that the first two weeks of this fellowship are dedicated to an intensive course on English academic writing. As such this fellowship is specifically designed for students who might benefit from such a course.

 If you have already received training in this field or if you are a (near) native speaker you might wish to consider applying for the four-week long fellowship. The fellowship will commence on 18 June 2017, and scholars are expected to make a presentation of 8,000 words on their work at the “Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies” to be organized at the end of July 2017

Successful candidates can expect the following benefits:

  1. A pro-rated monthly allowance based on SGD750.00 (inclusive of the portion to be paid towards your accommodation).
  2. A one-time round trip travel subsidy by the most economical and direct route (via budget airline if available) on a reimbursement basis upon being accepted for the fellowship.
  3. Access to library and computer resources on campus. 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) (https://www.iseas.edu.sg/library) 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.
  4. Exposure to seminars by various experts in the field.
  5. A mentor/advisor will be appointed based on candidate’s research topic.
  6. The Training Employment Pass and Visa will be arranged for by ARI.
