Summer 2019 Undergraduate Scholarship for Study Abroad in Indonesia

The Julia and Ken Gouw Undergraduate Centennial Scholarship for Study Abroad in Indonesia offers scholarships to UCLA undergraduate students for a language and service program in Indonesia for Summer 2019. Deadline: March 25, 2019.

Through a generous endowment by Julia and Ken Gouw and a match by the Chancellor’s Centennial Scholars Fund, the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies is excited to announce the competition for summer scholarship for UCLA undergraduate students. Priority is given to undergraduate students who have taken Indonesian language. Scholarships will cover the student's program fees and accommodations and provide $1350 to the student for international flights and stipend. Scholarship recipients are expected to submit a 1-2 page report within two weeks after the program ends.

The 2019 summer language and cultural immersion program:

  • 2 weeks in Bali, Indonesia from August 19 to August 30, 2019
  • First week - 20 hours of classroom instruction and site visits for language and cultural learning
  • 1 week (or 2 weeks) of volunteer after the language & cultural training ends. It can be done outside Bali as well but the organization/schools will provide the accommodation and the transportation.
  • Volunteer work at local schools, universities, NGOs, community groups (e.g. arts, traditional music, education, environment, etc.)
  • Living with homestay family (during the language and cultural learning and the volunteer week)

Interested students should submit:

  • 1-2 page proposal which details your interests in Indonesia including personal background, previous study including any language or area studies coursework, campus involvement, and/or other extracurricular activities and what you plan to do during your volunteer work and its value to your academic experience
  • An unofficial transcript
  • One letter of recommendation from an academic adviser/faculty mentor 

The deadline is March 25, 2019.
