Former Fellows now hold academic and professional positions around the world.
SEAREG Fellows are advanced PhD students or newly minted PhDs in the social sciences who display unusual promise as scholars of Southeast Asia. They are selected semi-annually via a competitive process.
The process begins by soliciting nominations for fellows (by faculty, students or self-nominations). All nominees submit their strongest unpublished paper, which is anonymized and read blindly by a committee of three faculty members. Each committee member independently ranks the papers, after which the committee meets to adjudicate their rankings and select the strongest papers.
