New Lingling Wiyadharma Fellowship for Indonesian special collections
The Lingling Wiyadharma Fellowship program offers the opportunity to three scholars to spend up to three months conducting research using the Southeast Asian and particularly the Indonesian special collections at Leiden University Libraries. The Lingling Wiyadharma Fellowship was made possible by Mr Hans van der Valk, alumnus of Leiden University, for which we are very grateful.
We especially invite Indonesian scholars to apply for the fellowship. The deadline for submitting a research proposal is May 1st, 2022. The Lingling Wiyadharma Fellow is expected to contribute to the activities of the Scaliger Institute and to give a public lecture. The fellow is also expected to publish the outcome and results of his or her research in a scholarly publication. Applications for the Lingling Wiyadharma Fellowship are submitted to a scientific assessment committee.
