What makes for a strong research proposal? This short workshop for Cambodian scholars will cover key points about applying for research grants and fellowships at CKS and elsewhere. Dr. Grant will discuss the general components of applications: project description, budget, bibliography, and how to solicit strong letters of recommendation. To help tailor the workshop to participants’ projects, participants are required to bring a 200-word abstract that introduces their proposed research project (topic, methods, why it is important, why you are a good person to do the work). At the end of the workshop, participants will have concrete plans for developing their grant and fellowship applications.
Please note: Available spots are limited. Cambodian scholars/students/researchers are given priority. Only selected participants will receive a confirmation email.
Dr. Jenna Grant is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and faculty at the Southeast Asia Center at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. Her book Fixing the Image: Ultrasound and the Visuality of Care in Phnom Penh (2022) explores medical imaging and the politics of technology in postcolonial Cambodia. The ethnographic and archival research for this book was supported by a CKS fellowship in 2010.
