Research Impact Awards

The Research Impact Awards are awarded annually to members of ASEAS(UK) to support research and impact activities in Southeast Asian Studies.

The grants may cover activities including:

  • fieldwork in Southeast Asia or key sites in the diaspora;
  • research visits to important regional archives, museums, collections, exhibitions or performances (concerning but not necessarily located in Southeast Asia);
  • a visit for collaborative writing or artistic practice with an academic or practitioner colleague from another institution in Southeast Asia;
  • delivery of a paper at a regional academic conference;
  • delivery of a paper to an academic or practitioner audience based on research previously conducted on/in the region.
