Summer 2018 Travel Grants for Research in Indonesia

The Indonesian Studies Program offers summer 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 2018. The funding is available to UCLA students including graduate students and undergraduates who have completed at least their sophomore year by June 2018. 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 1-2 page report of their activities while in Indonesia as they relate to the proposed research project and potentially to participate in an oral presentation of research supported by the Indonesian Studies Program.

Interested students should submit:

  • a 1-2 page proposal that explains the research activity and its rationale along with a timeline and indication of the place(s) in Indonesia to be visited
  • a CV (please include relevant courses taken)
  • an unofficial transcript
  • an itemized budget (please include estimated airfare, transportation within Indonesia, accommodations, visa fees, materials and supplies, etc.)
  • one letter of recommendation from an academic adviser/faculty mentor

Application is closed.
