New Grant: Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA)
The Henry Luce Foundation has recently announced a new grant, the “Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA)”. LuceSEA is a multi-year grants competition designed to encourage innovation in Southeast Asian studies through support for:
- work in new and emerging areas of inquiry and the expansion of direct engagement with scholars and institutions in Southeast Asia;
- collaborations and networks that link academic centers to each other and with partners outside academia; and
- the enhancement of core scholarly infrastructure for teaching and research relevant to Southeast Asia.
While details are still being worked out, they expect to issue a call for proposals in fall 2018 with the aim of making first awards in June 2019.
