Asian Civilisations Museum Research Fellowship Grant

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) in Singapore invites scholars specialising in Buddhist art, Avalokiteshvara or visual culture to apply for a 12-month research fellowship. The award period for the 2011-12 fellowships will commence from April 2011 through March 2012. The applications will be screened by a committee of eminent scholars and will be administered by the Research and Publication Unit (RPU) of ACM.


The research fellowships were first offered in 2009. They are planned to generate in-depth study, documentation and thought leading publications on specialised aspects of Asian cultures. This is in line with the aim of the ACM to be a centre of research in Asian cultures and arts. Since its opening at the Empress Place in 2003, the ACM has established a reputation in the international museum arena for its excellent gallery displays and exhibitions. The ACM is undertaking to develop its research potential in the field of Asian archaeology, art history and material culture, so as to become the regional hub synonymous with excellent research projects and publications in the field.

Applications close 15 January 2011.
