YALE CSEAS 2021 ADVISEMENTS AND POLICY UPDATES >>

CSEAS is currently accepting applications for summer research or study abroad or for projects to be conducted remotely. Any students submitting applications for projects involving international travel are encouraged to prepare an alternate remote project plan (if they have one) along with an alternate budget to submit if necessary.  Given the evolving COVID-19 landscape, we cannot guarantee that travel will be permitted or that proposals involving travel can be funded, however, it is important to begin preparing early for the possibility of travel if it is an option for you.

COUNCIL ON SOUTHEAST ASIA STUDIES GRANT

An endowment from the Ford Foundation allows CSEAS to provide limited fellowship support for the research-related purposes of Yale University graduate and undergraduate students with a demonstrated commitment to the field of Southeast Asian studies (Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia, East Timor, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam).

Appropriate purposes for support include (but are not limited to) language training, masters thesis summer research, pre-dissertation research field work, and funding supplements required to bring a research project to fruition. We do not fund long-term, basic dissertation research, nor do we consider applications for funding of activities connected with dissertation writeup.
