SUPRA - Visiting Residency

NIAS SUPRA, the Support Programme for Asian Studies, is one of our most important activities. SUPRA is all about hosting academic visitors working on Asia.

SUPRA has four components:

  • The Nordic scholarship programme is open to students residing and studying in the Nordic countries, who have been admitted to a university MA or PhD programme and who actively carry out studies relating to Asian studies. It typically funds two week visits to NIAS
  • Office facilities, for MA students from Nordic countries to spend time at NIAS while writing their theses
  • The guest researcher programme, which gives early career and established researchers the opportunity to conduct research at NIAS periods between one and twelve months
  • Project support: Nordic networks focusing on Asia can apply for support for workshops, seminars and conferences via the SUPRA programme.
