A friend in Cornell told me about this opportunity and I thought I'd plug it here. The name of the scholarship is the Luisa Mallari Fellowships for M.A./Ph.D. Research in Southeast Asian Studies and it is open to all students currently enrolled in social science or humanities graduate programs in a
Southeast Asian university. The catch here is that this scholarship encourages scholars to do comparative studies i.e. looking at more than one SEA country.
This scholarship also funds comparative research projects which a scholar might want to look at. For example, if one is interested in the phenomenon of ethnic voting i.e. voting for one's own ethnic party in Indonesia and Malaysia, one can apply for funding to this scholarship.
The full details can be found here. I'd apply for it if I fit the criterion.
Actually, if one looks hard enough, there are many scholarship opportunities out there. As I've said in past postings, too many scholars are dependent on funding opportunities within the system (be it internal university funding or IRPA funding) so much so that they feel that their hands are tied if these sources of funding fall through. Many lecturers are also far too dependent on government / university funding for their PhD studies and often let these private opportunities slip by.
So, if anyone out there fits the bill for this scholarship and is interested in comparative studies in the Southeast Asian context, I'd encourage you to apply!
im just wondering whether you could tell me some scholarships to do masters in law in the uk (preferably research, not taught)? i have done some research, and i have known a few with very stringent requirements (shell cetenary, jardine etc). others are such as chevening etc.mara and jpa - hmmm i dont think so.
thank u in advance, cheers
"Many lecturers are also far too dependent on government / university funding for their PhD studies and often let these private opportunities slip by."
I believe there are many who are willing to search for private funding. However, as you've mentioned in one of your previous posts, as there is no incentive for doing such, and even with outside funding, they'd still be bonded to the university/govt, many simply refuse to budge as it makes no difference to their independent efforts.
