ASIANetwork is pleased to announce that financial support has again been provided by the Freeman Foundation to run the 18th “Student-Faculty Fellows Program” in summer 2016. During the past seventeen years, the SFF program has awarded a total of 201 grants to 939 fellows from 105 different ASIANetwork member colleges and universities. Summaries of these research activities are available here.
SFF 2016 will mark the beginning of an exciting new direction for the SFF program. Under the new theme of “Engaging Asia,” the program is open to all disciplines and it will emphasize four interrelated activities: 1) engaging in interaction and collaboration with the people of Asia; 2) focusing on current global issues in an Asian context; 3) providing opportunities for skill development and career preparation; and 4) providing strong faculty mentoring to the students.
More information on SFF 2016 will be available online by July 2015.
