A new round of Alphawood Scholarships are announced for the 2022/2023 academic year. The full information and instructions are in the link below, and the deadline is 14 January 2022.
The Alphawood Scholarships form part of the Southeast Asian Art Academic Programme (SAAAP) at SOAS University of London, which is generously supported by the Alphawood Foundation (Chicago).
The remit of SAAAP is to:
support and advance, through study and research, the understanding and preservation of Southeast Asian Buddhist and Hindu art and architecture from ancient to pre-modern times. The SAAAP remit includes study of the built environment, sculpture, painting, illustrated texts, textiles and other tangible or visual representations, along with the written word related to these, and archaeological, museum and cultural heritage studies.
Between 2014 and 2021, SAAAP provided almost 100 Alphawood Scholarships that supported Southeast Asian scholars’ postgraduate study at the Certificate, Diploma, MA and MPhil/PhD levels in the Department of History of Art and Archaeology at SOAS.
