Ruth Daroesman Graduate Study Grant

Are you a postgraduate student or HDR candidate planning to undertake study or research in Asia and the Pacific? If so, you may be eligible to apply for the Ruth Daroesman Endowment which assists domestic or international students to participate in research activities in the Asia/ Pacific region.

One grant is available per year - valued at $5000.

The Ruth Daroesman Graduate Study Grant aims to encourage research on topics relating to Indonesia to be undertaken by students enrolled in a post-graduate degree at the College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) at The Australian National University and to support research intended to increase knowledge of Indonesia’s society, culture, language, economy, governance and environment.

Funding for the grant has been provided through the Ruth Daroesman Endowment which was established in 2013 in memory of Ruth Daroesman and her contributions to the study of the Asia and the Pacific and the Australian National University by Ruth’s family and friends.

Applications are now open! and close on 9 June 2019.

Selection is made primarily on the basis of academic merit as evidenced by past academic achievement (undergraduate and post-graduate) as well as the application.

Priority will be given to projects on Indonesia that focus on:

  • social equity and inclusion;
  • education, language and culture;
  • community development and empowerment;
  • demographic transitions;
  • agriculture and food security; or
  • natural resource management
