ASEAS 2018 Travel Bursaries

ASEAS is offering 6 travel bursaries of £250 each to support the attendance of Southeast Asian researchers at the conference in Leeds on September 5-7. Scholars must be based at institutions in Southeast Asia and in need of a small amount of additional funding in order to attend. They may be linked with a collaborative project with a UK or other European academic institution and should already have had an abstract accepted for the conference.

Please send applications to Dr Janet Cochrane on with your name and institutional affiliation, the title of the paper and the panel it has been accepted for, and outlining additional sources of funding already in place to attend the conference. (NB. the bursary will only be paid to a UK bank account on behalf of a Southeast Asian researcher or paid in cash on arrival in Leeds.)
