Fellowship for Visiting Scholars at Kyoto University

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies of Kyoto University is now accepting applications from scholars and researchers who work on Southeast Asia, or on any one of the countries in that region, and are interested in spending time in Kyoto, Japan, in order to conduct research, write, or pursue other scholarly interests in connection with their field of study.
Since 1963, more than two hundreds distinguished scholars have visited the Center for periods ranging from six months to one year. They have availed themselves of the Center's considerable scholarly resources and the invigorating atmosphere of scenic Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan and the main repository of the country's cultural treasures, to pursue their interests in Southeast Asian area studies. The Center's multi-disciplinary character and the diverse research interests of its faculty offer visiting scholars an ideal opportunity for the exchange of ideas and the cultivation of comparative perspectives.
Five fellowships will be awarded for the second half of each year on a competitive basis. Fellowships are normally for a six-month duration, although in exceptional cases they can be extended for an additional six months.

Successful applicants will receive an appropriate stipend to cover international travel and living expenses in Kyoto. Research funds will also be provided to facilitate his/her work. Funds will also be allocated for domestic travel, subject to government regulations, and a number of other facilities are available to visiting scholars. Fellows will be expected to reside in Kyoto for the duration of their fellowship period.

Scholars are normally invited to deliver a public lecture during their term at the Center. Fellows will also be encouraged to submit an article for possible publication in the Center's quarterly journal, Southeast Asian Studies, and to contribute to the online Kyoto Review of Southeast Asia.
