SUMITRO FELLOWS 2009 GRANT APPLICATIONS
Deadline October 31, 2008
The United States Indonesia Society (USINDO) invites applications for its two 2009 travel/study grants for post-doctoral scholars, Ph.D. candidates, senior academics, and otherwise professionally qualified candidates to engage in field research in Indonesia on an economic or political-economic topic. One grant is available to United States citizens and permanent residents in the United States with a specific project relating to the political economy of Indonesia . The Indonesian Sumitro Fellowship is open to an Indonesian citizen with a project related to the Indonesia-United States bilateral relationship. Previous travel to, and experience in, Indonesia or the United States (for Indonesian Sumitro applicants) is desirable but not necessarily a requirement. The deadline for the 2009 Sumitro Fellows Applications is Friday, October 31, 2008.
The Sumitro Fellows program honors Dr. Sumitro Djojohadikusumo, Indonesia ’s senior economist and advisor to USINDO, who passed away in 2001. An architect of Indonesia ’s modern economy, Professor Sumitro headed the faculty of economics at the University of Indonesia , and was later a minister of trade and minister of state for research. Professor Sumitro was also the driving force behind a 1950’s program of the Ford Foundation which sent Indonesian economists to U.S. academic institutions for advanced degrees. Many attended the University of California at Berkeley and the group came to be known as the “Berkeley Mafia” when its members assumed many key cabinet posts in subsequent decades.
The Sumitro Fellows grants for the 2009 application cycle are $10,000 each.
