The CDSSEA Scholarship Program

The Consortium of Development Studies in Southeast Asia (CDSSEA) is awarding scholarships to candidates from Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand who would like to pursue a Master’s degree in development studies in Thailand.

Under the CDSSEA scholarship Program, applicants can choose to study on one of three leading development programs, namely: the Master of Arts in International Development Studies (MAIDS) at Chulalongkorn University, the Master of Arts in Sustainable Development (MASD) at Chiang Mai University or the Master of Science in Gender and Development Studies (MGDS) at the Asian Institute of Technology.

The scholarship program is administered by CDSSEA, which was established in 2012 by the three institutions and with the support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), its aim being to build leadership capacity with regard to development studies in Southeast Asia - educating those capable of critically analyzing the development conundrum and understanding the regionalization of the development process, a process which plays a key role in building and maintaining dynamism in the region. The programs encourage students to seek out development alternatives based on social equity, environmental justice and economic and ecological sustainability, while fostering linkages that help better inform policymaking with respect to development-related issues. As a result, CDSSEA is actively promoting the creation of a team of highly qualified development studies practitioners in Southeast Asia, and in the future hopes to open other programs across the region.

A full scholarship will be given to successful candidates, covering tuition fees, a monthly allowance, field research expenses (specifically for programs that require field research), and travelling expenses to and from the student’s home country. The duration of the scholarship depends upon the length of each program and will range from 14 months through to 22 months.
