U-M CSEAS Library and Special Collections Fellowship 2019-2020

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), the University Library, and the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan (U-M) offer a four-week research fellowship to Southeast Asian scholars to use the research resources of the University of Michigan. The fellowship includes international airfare, research funds, housing, and a living stipend while the scholar is in residence in Ann Arbor. The scholar will enjoy research space and computing privileges at the university, as well as assistance from the Southeast Asia research librarian and CSEAS.

Information on U-M collections and other specialized collections on the Philippine-American period, Philippine ethnology and archaeology, the Vietnam War, and other related content are available through:

University Library
Bentley Historical Library

Included in the award:

– International travel cost for round-trip travel from the scholars’ home to Ann Arbor, Michigan.
– Housing on the U-M campus for up to four weeks
– Health insurance
– Stipend for living expenses and research

Scholars must be affiliated with an institution of education in Southeast Asia. Research on any topic relevant to Southeast Asian studies is acceptable, though preference will be given to those whose topics are particularly relevant to the holdings of the University of Michigan. No special allowances or additional funds are available for scholars who choose to bring family members with them.
