The Fulbright-DIKTI Indonesian Senior Scholar Recharging Program is an experimental program that allows selected Indonesian senior scholars to spend 10 weeks in the U.S. at a research university. The University of Washington was chosen as the first site for the program because of the excellence and quantity of scholars who specialize on Indonesia in Anthropology, the Asian Law Center, Archaeology, Ethnomusicology, Environmental Science and Conservation, Global Health, History, Literature and Film, Marine Affairs, Political Science, and Primatology. The Indonesian scholars will be matched with UW faculty mentors for an intensive program of academic collaboration. The program will include weekly seminar series both for and by the scholars, exposure to university research facilities, and opportunities to visit other institutions around Washington. The Scholars will arrive in mid-September and leave at the end of November. If this pilot program is successful, it will spread to other campuses in the U.S. The program is sponsored by CIEE Fulbright, AMINEF Indonesia, The Center for Global Field Study, the Jackson School and the Southeast Asia Center. Professor Randy Kyes of the Departments of Psychology and Global Health, the Washington National Primate Center and Director of the Center for Global Field Study is heading up the new program.
