LEE KONG CHIAN NUS: Stanford Distinguished Fellowship on Southeast Asia

Friday, March 1, 2019 - 23:59


The Lee Kong Chian Fellowship is the core of the Lee Kong Chian NUS-Stanford Initiative on Southeast Asia, a joint effort established in 2007 by the National University of Singapore and Stanford University to raise the visibility, extent, and quality of scholarship on contemporary Southeast Asia. A successful candidate will spend up to six months divided between residencies at NUS and at Stanford, writing and conducting research on, or related to, contemporary Southeast Asia. Fellows will also have opportunities to speak and take part in seminars and workshops organized by relevant campus units. In determining the overall length of the fellowship and the sequencing and lengths of the stays at each campus, the preferences of the fellow concerned will be taken into account. Each fellowship will cover one roundtrip economy-class airfare from the fellow’s country of residence to NUS (or Stanford), on to Stanford (or NUS), and back to the fellow’s country of residence; flight-related ground transportation; and a stipend of US$ 7500 per month during the fellowship period.
