Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia

The Henry Luce Foundation is pleased to announce the Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA), a multi-year grants competition approved by the Foundation’s Directors in June 2018. LuceSEA will be administered by the Foundation’s Asia Program. The broad goal of LuceSEA is to strengthen the study of Southeast Asia in American higher education by providing resources for the creation of models, strategies and partnerships that not only bolster existing program structures but also take them in new directions.

LuceSEA aims to encourage innovation in the study of Southeast Asia through support for

  • work in new and emerging areas of inquiry and the expansion of direct engagement with scholars and institutions in Southeast Asia;
  • the enhancement of scholarly infrastructure for teaching and research relevant to Southeast Asia; and
  • collaborations and networks that link academic centers to each other and with partners outside academia.

Within American philanthropic circles, the Luce Foundation is unique in its longstanding support for Southeast Asian studies. It is an appropriate moment for the Foundation to reinvest in the field, to ensure that it remains vibrant and relevant.

Please Note: During the life of LuceSEA, the Asia Program plans to continue through the Responsive Grants category to fund proposals with a SEA focus that fall outside the LuceSEA guidelines.
