The term “fellowship” could mean research grant and has caused confusion to candidates for the Programme that it offers an award for conducting a research, which is not. Thus the 2002 SEAMEO-Jasper Selection Committee decided to rename it to “SEAMEO-Jasper Research Award” effective 2003.
Commitment of the Research Award
The Government of Canada awarded a Cdn$250,000 grant to SEAMEO so that an endowment could be established, the interest of which supports the research fellow in the dissemination of his/her research, travel expenses to Canada and some SEAMEO Member Countries, with health and travel insurance.
In addition, the winner will be awarded a plaque of citation at the SEAMEO High Officials Meeting normally held in Bangkok, Thailand.
Announcement inviting researchers to submit their applications are sent to the Ministries or the Departments of Education of SEAMEO Member Countries and SEAMEO Regional Centres where the application form and details about the competition can be obtained.
