Southeast Asian Art Academic Programme

We are a transformational programme that aims to further the understanding and preservation of ancient to pre-modern Buddhist and Hindu art and architecture in Southeast Asia.

The Programme supported over 90 scholarships between 2014 and 2019 and funds three fully endowed academic posts at SOAS, as well as numerous research and publishing initiatives, conferences, summer programmes, lectures and workshops in London and Southeast Asia.

Southeast Asian Art Academic Programme is designed to strengthen SOAS’ research expertise and existing institutional links to create a vibrant network linking art, archaeology and heritage organisations in the Southeast Asian region. We do this through three main streams of activity: 

  • Scholarships
  • Research and publications
  • Outreach

What makes the Alphawood Scholarship important for you?
