Lee Kong Chian Research Fellowship & George Lyndon Hicks Fellowship for Southeast Asia Collections

The Lee Kong Chian Research Fellowship (LKCRF) program started in 2005 and is into its 11th year. The Fellowship aims to facilitate new research and publishing about Singapore and Southeast Asian culture, economy and heritage. This will enrich the Asia-centric collections and resources of the Lee Kong Chian Reference Library at the National Library of Singapore.  We welcome talented scholars and researchers to use our resources and services, and to collaborate with us on joint research projects to create new knowledge. The LKCRF will be offered to individuals interested in suggested fields of research identified by the Library.

The George Lyndon Hicks Fellowship for Southeast Asia Collections (GLHF) aims to attract top professionals to work with the National Library Board (NLB) to develop its collections on Singapore and Southeast Asia. Through the Fellowship, NLB also aims to foster partnerships with collectors worldwide. We welcome talented librarians, researchers, curators, archivists and collectors to collaborate with us.
