APSA Asia Program


The American Political Science Association’s Asia Program 
is a multi-year effort to support political science research and networking among early-career scholars in East and Southeast Asia. Working with a variety of partners including university departments, research centers, and political science associations, APSA offers workshops, seminars, research grants, and other professional development resources. The program extends APSA’s engagement with the international political science community and strengthens research networks linking American scholars with colleagues overseas. APSA’s Asia Pacific Workshops are an annual fellowship opportunity for PhD students and early-career political science faculty from East and Southeast Asia. The one-week workshop brings together approximately 25 scholars for training in research and writing skills and to foster regional and international collaboration. Each program is dedicated to a substantive issue in political science, with a unique program of lectures, research presentations, guest speakers, peer review sessions, professional development seminars, and local field trips. The program is open to PhD candidates, post-docs, and early career faculty working in political science and other social science disciplines, from universities and/or research institutions in Brunei, Cambodia, China, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
