NIAS SUPRA, the Support Programme for Asian Studies, is one of the most important of NIAS’ services. The SUPRA programme comprises multiple forms of research support specially aimed at students and researchers, including a number of online services available both at NIAS, and outside the institute.
The 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. SUPRA also gives researchers the opportunity to come to NIAS to carry out their research for a short or long period. Other Nordic networks focusing on Asia can apply for support for workshops, seminars and conferences via the SUPRA programme.
The Support Programme for Asian Studies offers the following possibilities:
- NIAS SUPRA Nordic Scholarship
- Workplace for Masters students
- Guest researcher stays
- Offices for PhD students
- Support to Nordic networks working on Asia
- Asia in Focus online journal
