API Fellowships for Year 2011-2012

What is the API Fellowships Program?
It is a fellowships program that provides a grant to successful applicants to carry out a project during the fellowship period of one month to one year in a country or countries (currently confined to Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand).
What are API Senior Fellowships and API Fellowships?
The fellowships are offered under two categories: API Senior Fellowships and API Fellowships.
The API Senior Fellowships are meant for those with an established track record as a public intellectual and who are at least 40 years of age, as of August 31, 2010. The fellowship period should be a minimum of one month to a maximum of twelve months in up to four of the countries participating in the API Fellowships Program (Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand).
The API Fellowships are for those under 40 years of age as of August 31, 2010. The fellowship period should be a minimum of four months to a maximum of twelve months in one or two of the countries participating in the API Fellowships Program (Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand).
.
For both categories, the fellowship period must be continuous and the minimum period of visit to a project country is one month and cannot include the native country or country of residence.
What can I do as a project?
The project may take several forms: a research paper, a film, a series of journalistic articles, data gathering, building networks, a work of art, etc.; but it must fulfill the following three conditions:
????
It must NOT be part of your regular employment output;
????
It must contribute to the goals of the API Fellowships Program, and must fit in with the API themes (please refer to page 3);
????
It must have a tangible output (a research paper, a film, a photo essay, etc.).
The project must be carried out in one or more of the API Participating Countries (Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand), but NOT in your native country or country of residence.
While Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam have become members of the API Fellowships Program from 2010 and Fellowships have been awarded to applicants from these countries, these three countries are not as yet available as the country(ies) to conduct projects.
You will need to identify one institution as the Host Institution in the country or countries where you will be going to on your project. The Host Institution will be your institution of affiliation for your fellowship period in the country.
The fellowship can start anytime on or after July 1, 2011 and ends on or by July 31, 2012. You must complete your project within this period.
