NUS-HYI Joint Scholarship Program for Ph.D. Studies
The National University of Singapore - Harvard-Yenching Institute Joint Scholarship Program (JSP) is for young faculty at HYI partner institutions in Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia to complete a Ph.D. at the National University of Singapore, with 12-18 months of dissertation research at Harvard University. Candidates' research should focus on East and Southeast Asian Studies, either with a disciplinary or interdisciplinary approach, and with the expectation that they will enroll in NUS's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
Terms and Conditions
Each candidate will be funded for a maximum of 4 years of full-time study. The first two and a half to three (2.5-3) years of study may be undertaken at the National University of Singapore, with the remaining one to one and a half (1-1.5) years for conducting dissertation research at Harvard University.
At NUS, the scholarship will include tuition fees and a stipend. While at Harvard, HYI will cover economy fare roundtrip transportation to Cambridge, a monthly stipend and medical insurance for the individual scholar.
Applicants are required to have a Master's degree in a relevant discipline or an Honors degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline. They must hold a teaching position at one of HYI's partner institutions in Southeast Asia, or have teaching experience at one of these partner institutions, with assurance that the candidate will be strongly considered for reemployment after graduation from the program.
Only applicants whose institutions are affiliated with HYI are eligible to apply.
