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 three hundred 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
research scholars an ideal opportunity for the exchange of ideas and the
cultivation of comparative perspectives.

Five fellowships will be awarded for the latter half of 2016/ the first
half of 2017 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 be
provided to facilitate his/her work. Funds will also be allocated for
domestic travel, subject to government regulations. Visiting Research
Scholars are considered as employees of Kyoto University and are therefore
subject to some of the University’s regulations. They will be expected to
reside in Kyoto for the duration of their fellowship. They are expected to
deliver a public lecture during their term at the Center and participate in
conferences and other academic activities within Japan as representatives
of the CSEAS. They are strongly encouraged to contribute to the Center’s
journal, *Southeast Asian Studies
the online journal Kyoto Review of Southeast Asia
and other in-house publications, and contribute to expanding the CSEAS’
global alumni network.


Five fellowships, including one librarian position, will become available
on the following dates:

1) September 1, 2016
2) October 1, 2016
3) November 1, 2016
4) November 1, 2016 (library)
5) January 10, 2017


Applicants must be productive scholars of high reputation under 65 years of
age at the time of the fellowship appointment; those over 65 may be
considered only if they are outstanding. This fellowship is not available
to individuals currently pursuing graduate degrees or post-doctoral
studies. Only experienced librarians are eligible to apply for the library
position. Scholars who have previously held CSEAS fellowships must wait six
years after the completion of their fellowships before reapplying.
