Posted by Jamal Fida Thursday, November 24, 2011 0 comments
Closing Date: January 15,2012.

The Sumitro Fellows Program honors Dr. Sumitro Djojohadikusumo, Indonesia’s senior economist and co-founder of USINDO, who passed away in 2001. An architect of Indonesia’s modern economy, Professor Sumitro headed the faculty of economics at the University of Indonesia, and was later a minister of trade and minister of state for research.
Professor Sumitro was also the driving force behind a 1950’s program of the Ford Foundation which sent Indonesian economists to the U.S. for advanced degrees. Many attended the University of California at Berkeley and the group came to be known as the “Berkeley Mafia” when its members assumed key cabinet posts in subsequent decades.
One Fellowship is available for United States citizens/permanent resident for research relating to the political economy of Indonesia. Another fellowship is available for an Indonesian citizen with a project related to the Indonesian-United States relationship.

USINDO is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2012 Sumitro Fellows Program.
The Sumitro Fellows Program is a $10,000 travel/study grant for post-doctoral scholars, PhD candidates, senior academics, and otherwise professionally qualified candidates to engage in field research.  One Fellowship is available for a United States citizen/permanent resident for research relating to the political economy of Indonesia. One Fellowship is also available for an Indonesian citizen with a project related to the Indonesian-United States relationship.
