Call for Applications: Asian Graduate Student Fellowships 2019 (6 weeks In-residence) at Asia Research Institute, NUS, Singapore

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.

 

INTENSIVE ENGLISH ACADEMIC WRITING COURSE

A limited number of students may be selected to take part in a two-week long intensive course on English academic writing. This program is specifically intended for students who struggle with writing and/or communicating in academic English. You are asked to indicate in your application if you see a need for participating in this course. If you have already received training in this field or if you are a (near) native speaker you might not benefit from this course. Please note that those students who enroll in the English academic writing program will thus have two weeks less time to conduct research locally. Please consider carefully what is more important to you at this stage of your career.

 

REQUIREMENTS & EXPECTATIONS

The fellowship will commence on 17 June 2019, and scholars are expected to finish a paper of 8,000 words and make a presentation on their work at the “Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies” to be organized from 22 to 26 July 2019. You are requested to have a draft of your paper and to submit it not later than two weeks before commencing the fellowship program (04 June 2019). This paper will be shared with your local mentor in preparation for your interactions with her/him.

 

Successful candidates can expect the following benefits:

  1. A one-time allowance of SGD500.00
  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.
  7. On-campus accommodation will be arranged by ARI.

Call for Applications | Beyond Anthropocene: Banff Research in Culture (BRiC) Visual + Digital Arts

Program Overview

Successful societies learn to live sustainably by adapting to their environment and naturally imposed resource constraints. Our society may no longer be able to mitigate global warming and its widespread ecological impacts without significant structural change. Some climate scientists have begun to use the tricky vocabulary of “adaptation” to suggest we can modify our ecological systems, instead of our social ones, to ensure our future existence. Others refer to “transition” — a slow nudging of humanity to a better course. Adaptation and transition are becoming accepted narratives of ways forward, yet revolution may be needed to overturn the many inequalities that shape our society and its impact on the environment.

The Beyond Anthropocene program asks how adaptation, transition, and revolution might prescribe our future realities. Together we will investigate the capacities and limits of our imaginations to conceive of what lies beyond the climate crisis. The residency is for artists, cultural theorists, researchers, scientists, architects, and writers engaged with these topics as they struggle to understand how to respond to 21st Century challenges. Throughout this intensive program, participants will engage in productive dialogue, expand their knowledge and understanding through collaboration, and develop a critical collection of creative research, writings, musings, designs, and solutions for addressing the next epoch of human existence.

What does the program offer?

Participants will engage in group discussions, lectures, seminars, and workshops offered by visiting faculty and guests.

Through peer interaction, collaboration, and conversation, participants will gain new insights and approaches that can be applied to the development of their work and the program theme. The program will also forge lasting networks among researchers and artists, and become a basis for future engagement.

Who should apply?

We invite compelling and original proposals from mid-career thinkers, researchers, architects, writers, curators, scientists and social scientists, and artists.

Researchers should be working at a post-doctoral level or beyond. Artists, architects, and writers must have completed formal training in their discipline and demonstrate a commitment to exhibition, publication, and professional practice.

About Banff Research in Culture (BRiC)

It offers an opportunity for those with similar interests from different disciplinary and professional backgrounds to exchange opinions, ideas, and create.
