The RSAA Travel Awards open to applicants

The Royal Society for Asian Affairs Travel Awards support practical projects and research that have the potential to contribute to advances in scholarly or other public knowledge including, but not limited to, post-graduate degrees, journalism and travel writing.

Applicants must be aged 21-28 at the time of application. Applicants may be of any nationality but should be normally resident in the UK.  The awards are intended to support individual travel and may not be used for commercial purposes or to fund participation in activities arranged by another organisation.

The RSAA’s focus is on contemporary Asia and its recent history.  Travel Award applications may relate to any aspect of this remit.  In the current round, the Society will particularly welcome applications relating to:

Colonialism and its Legacies – the study of the cultural, political, and economic experiences and legacies of colonialism and imperialism in Asia.

Exploration – the geographical, environmental, cultural, or historical exploration of countries, regions, or peoples of post-1900 Asia.

Technology and the State – studies of technological advancement and its applications in infrastructure, surveillance and communication (including social media) in contemporary Asia.

Awards may be up to £2,000 and include two-years’ membership of the Society, giving access to the Society’s network, events and publications.
