The SEARA Program
About the program
To understand the importance of research and the relevant techniques to carry out research in a rigorous manner.
To apply the knowledge and skills related to research methodology in their respective research projects.
To evaluate real-world issues and situations in Southeast Asia (SEA) through different disciplines and perspectives to generate meaningful discussions and make informed decisions.
To create values by learning mutually and through collective efforts in order to make a greater impact on one another and the community concerned.
Four batches each year and each batch will last for eight weeks (two months).
Postgraduate students and young researchers; academicians and practitioners who are citizens of Southeast Asia or residing in the region.
Completion and submission of the registration form.
Positive attitude and strong commitment to the program and the academy.
There is no registration fee. Donations to SDG related works are welcomed.
Each registration form will be evaluated. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed and successful candidates will be informed and announced as new members.
Each batch has a quota on the number of members. Unsuccessful candidates can apply again for the next batch.
Each member is expected to attend weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings and complete a small group assignment. There will be other optional activities.
I found the program very beneficial not only to improve our research knowledge but also to assist novice researchers to conduct research with confidence.
As a Ph.D. candidate, I have benefited from the series of SEARA’s training programmes, discussions and most importantly, I have made wonderful new friends from Southeast Asia!
Khanh Diem Ngo
Since I joined SEARA, my spirit for doing research is being strengthened. I believe that SEARA is a community for supporting young researchers who really want to learn and earn knowledge effectively.
