The Indonesian Studies Program offers travel grants for UCLA graduate and undergraduate students.

Through a generous gift of Ms. Julia Gouw, the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies is pleased to announce the availability of travel grants to support field research in Indonesia during Summer 2016. The funding is available to UCLA students including graduate students and undergraduates who have completed at least their sophomore year by June 2016. Undergraduates are especially encouraged to apply. Fellowships are anticipated to be in the $2,000 - $3,000 range. Grant recipients will be required upon their return to write a 2-3 page report of their activities while in Indonesia as they relate to the proposed research project and perhaps to participate in an oral presentation of research supported by the Indonesian Studies Program.
