The Office of International Affairs would like to inform you of an excellent fellowship opportunity available to scholars with an interest or focus on contemporary Southeast Asia studies.
The Lee Kong Chian NUS-Stanford Initiative on Southeast East, founded in 2007, gives a scholar the opportunity to spend a period of up to a year writing and conducting research on or related to contemporary Southeast Asia. Each scholar will be given the opportunity to conduct research at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and at Stanford University, with a monthly stipend and all airfare expenses paid. Fellows may expect to share their research findings in academic seminars and professional forums.
Candidates may be of any nationality and reside in any country. Applicants should submit (a) a project statement (not to exceed three pages) that justifies and describes in writing and research envisaged during the fellowship and addresses the project's central analytic question; (b) a schedule of preferred locations and dates including time in residence at each of the two campuses; (c) a sample of previous English-language publication; (d) a curriculum vitae including when and where the Ph.D. was awarded; and (e) full contact information including email addresses for three references who are able, if asked, to evaluate the proposal and the candidate.
The exact length of the fellowship and the allocation of time spent at each campus will take into account the preferences of the successful applicant. The fellowship carries a stipend of US$7,500 per month plus reimbursement for air travel to and from NUS and Stanford. Complete applications are due by November 14, 2008. Results will be announced by mid-February 2009.
