Digital Impact Award

ASEAS welcomes applications from Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers in any field of Southeast Asian studies for its new Digital Impact Award. 

With travel restricted in the current climate the aim of the award is to support the creation of a digital project based on research or a project that has already been conducted in Southeast Asia.

The project could involve:    

  • The dissemination of research to a non-academic audience;
  • Online collaboration with an external partner or organisation in Southeast Asia on a project directly related to your research;
  • The development of a film or similar artistic project.

The purpose of the funding is to enable scholars to promote their work through a non-traditional platform to both academic and non-academic audiences. It is hoped the process will enable scholars to develop their research and refine their ideas, as well as foster a wider interest in Southeast Asian Studies.

Criteria

  • The award is open to current members of ASEAS(UK) who are candidates for MRes, MPhil or PhD degrees or Early Career researchers. ‘Early Career’ scholars are those within five years of their first continuing lecturing or research appointment.
  • The award is available for digital activities taking place between 1 April and 31 December 2021.
  • There is one award for £1500 open to PhD, MPhil, MRes students and early career researchers.
  • The decision on allocating the award will be made on the basis of the proposed project’s fit with the criteria outlined above and on the expected outcomes.
