Lee Kong Chian Fellow

June 15, 2022

Congratulations to Professor Jacques Bertrand who has been appointed as the Lee Kong Chian NUS-Stanford Visiting Fellow for 2022-23.

The Lee Kong Chian Fellowship on Southeast Asia is the core of the Lee Kong Chian NUS-Stanford Initiative on Southeast Asia, a joint effort established in 2007 by the National University of Singapore and Stanford University to raise the visibility, extent, and quality of scholarship on contemporary Southeast Asia. The infrastructure for research pursued through the fellowship is provided by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at NUS and the Southeast Asia Program in the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (Shorenstein APARC) at Stanford.

Lee Kong Chian NUS-Stanford fellows spend three to four months at Stanford and two to four months at the National University of Singapore, writing and conducting research on, or related to, contemporary Southeast Asia. Fellows have opportunities to present their research and participate in seminars and workshops organized by relevant campus units. Exposure to the two universities and their scholars and resources enriches and diversifies collegial feedback on the fellows’ research projects and facilitates intellectual exchange and networking on both sides of the Pacific.
