Luce Foundation Travel Grants

We are happy to announce that a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation enables us to offer ten (10) grants of up to $500 each to Ph.D. students wishing to attend the 2015 meeting. These grants may be used to defray the costs of travel, accommodations, registration fees, and/or incidentals for students traveling to Chicago. Students wishing to be considered for a travel grant should send the following materials to Dan Slater via email: (1) a one-page summary of their research interests and experience and (2) a current CV.

Grantees will be chosen based on their scholarly promise as Southeast Asianists as well as attendance of the previous SEAREG meetings. Applications for Luce Foundation travel grants are due no later than March 10, 2015. Decisions will be announced soon thereafter.
