US Scholar research award grantees to conduct research in their area of expertise. Projects may focus on contemporary Indonesia and involve ethnographic research, or maybe historical and involve archival research. Preference will be given to projects that address issues of public concern in Indonesia and involve collaboration with Indonesian scholars and institutions. Research grantees may be asked to give public talks and to engage with the larger academic community beyond their host institution, for which additional funds may be available.
Research grants can begin anytime from September through May, dependent on research and visa permission, and maybe for a period of five to ten months.
Research grantees will need an Ethical Clearance and/or Research Permit from the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). After securing those permits, grantees must also acquire research visa (C315) from the Indonesian immigration office.
AMINEF will provide assistance in obtaining such permits. Although the vast majority of applications are approved, AMINEF cannot guarantee Indonesian government agencies’ approval, and in the case of a rejected application, the grantee may not be able to take up the award offer.
In addition to the general eligibility criteria mentioned in US Fulbright Scholar Program, applicants for research grants are also expected to be moderately fluent in Indonesian.
