    Cultivating the Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) Research Grants for scholars from South and Southeast Asia

    Submission Deadline: September 1, 2023The Cultivating the Humanities and Social Sciences Research Grants are made possible thanks to the generous support of Sweden. This grant program is part of a new collaborative transnational project that aims at enhancing the research capabilities of scholars and local institutions, especially in post-conflict and conflict areas, while helping to reduce the social and economic vulnerabilities of South and Southeast Asian countries through policy-relevant research.

    The project focuses on junior faculty, graduate students, senior and independent scholars, women and ethnic minority groups in particular. Cultivating the Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) Research Grants are available for short- (up to 4 months), medium (5 – 7 months), and long-term (8 – 12 months) research projects that advance the fields of the humanities and social sciences in South and Southeast Asia.

    The Association for Asian Studies invites applications from low- and lower middle-income countries of Southeast Asia (e.g., Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam) as well as from less economically advantaged countries and areas of South Asia (e.g., Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and India).  When evaluating proposals from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and India, the review committee will prioritize applicants who come from regions and/or institutions with resource and infrastructure constraints. We also encourage collaborative projects, especially those that partner scholars from under-resourced institutions with colleagues at institutions that offer more resources and infrastructure to support their work.

    Recipients of CHSS grants will be invited to submit a panel proposal at an AAS-in-Asia conference, where they will have the opportunity to share the results of their research projects, participate in skill-building workshops, and discuss publishing prospects with our partners based in Asia, Europe, and the U.S.
