Lemelson Fellowships on Indonesia
The Indonesian Studies Program of UCLA's Center for Southeast Asian Studies offers fellowships to support graduate student research on Indonesia.
Published: Friday, January 18, 2013
The funding, made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Robert Lemelson, is available to all UCLA graduate and undergraduate students. There are no citizenship requirements. Fellowships are anticipated to be approximately $5,000, although requests for other amounts may be submitted.
The Center will entertain any proposal that is centrally related to Indonesia, but will give priority to those that seek support for fieldwork in Indonesia or archival research (in Indonesia or elsewhere). Funds permitting, the Center will also consider supporting other activities, including dissertation writing or intensive language study in Indonesia. While all UCLA students are eligible to apply, proposals for doctoral research will receive priority.
Funding period: April 2013-December 2014.
Application deadline: March 17, 2013
Interested students should submit:
- a two page proposal that explains the research activity and its rationale
- a CV
- a proposed budget
- one letter of recommendation from an academic advisor

The Indonesian Studies Program was founded in 2008, as part of UCLA's Center for Southeast Asian Studies, through a generous grant from Dr. Robert Lemelson. Students receiving Lemelson Fellowships will be expected to give appropriate credit/recognition of the grant in their public presentations, publications, and other forums in which they present their work. Dr. Lemelson is a research anthropologist at the Semel Institute of Neurosciences at UCLA and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Anthropology; he is also a noted film maker and philanthropist.
