Asia Research Institute Grants

Since it was established in 2001 under the directorship of Tony Reid, ARI has matured into one of the world’s foremost research centres on Asia. The Institute brings together scholars working across the social sciences and humanities, forming a vital space for Asia-focused cross-disciplinary research collaboration. The location of ARI at NUS, one of the Asia-Pacific region’s premier universities, and of NUS itself in Singapore – a long established hub for movements of people and ideas – provides us with an incomparable institutional and geographical home for research on Asia.
ARI’s modus operandi is to bring the finest scholars, both early career and more established, to Singapore to work in inter-disciplinary teams in an environment that encourages innovative thinking and supports research excellence. Research at ARI is structured into seven cross-disciplinary research clusters, each led by a senior scholar: Asian Migration, Asian Urbanisms, Changing Family in Asia, Identities, Inter-Asia Engagements, Religion and Globalisation, and Science, Technology and Society. These clusters hold regular seminars, workshops, reading groups and conferences, providing the settings for critical exchanges between scholars with allied intellectual interests but different disciplinary ways of seeing and methodological inclinations.
Our cluster leaders have joint appointments with one of the university’s disciplinary departments. But the majority of our academic staff are early career postdoctoral fellows and mid-career research fellows. They are attached to one – sometimes two – of our research clusters. ARI’s scholarly dynamism is also sustained by short-term visiting fellows from across the globe. The mixture of permanent NUS staff, dedicated postdoctoral researchers, more established fellows, Singapore-based research associates, and researchers linked to projects, as well as short-term visitors, makes ARI a stimulating milieu for the advancement of scholarship on Asia – historical, contemporary and future-facing.
