SEAC secures four more years of Title VI funding

October 8, 2014

We are very pleased to announce that the UW Southeast Asia Center once again secured Title VI funding for our Center as well as for Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships.  This four-year, 2 million dollar grant will help support UW students studying Southeast Asian languages and will allow us to continue to offer quality innovative programming and activities about Southeast to the UW campus community and the broader public.  We will be offering advanced levels of Tagalog and Khmer as well as strengthening our other Southeast Asian languages, initiating new collaborations with Highline Community College, the Suquamish Museum, and the Northwest Indian College, strengthening collaborations with the Philippine Women’s University and the Indonesian Institution of Arts Education, and running a Search for a new Anthropologist of Theravada Buddhist Mainland Southeast Asia among our many initiatives.
