The Sylff Association secretariat is pleased to announce the 18 recipients of SRA awards in the second selection round for fiscal 2019. In this round, we again received outstanding applications for research in various specialized fields from fellows all over the world.
We reviewed all applications carefully from the perspectives of eligibility, the feasibility of the proposals, and the relevance of the proposed research to the applicants’ academic pursuits. The awardees in this round were at different stages of their research, some taking advantage of SRA to collect fundamental data for their doctoral dissertation, with others using the opportunity to verify their findings and receive further advice from overseas experts.
We received a record number of quality applications this year, and this has resulted in a record number of awardees. The secretariat is delighted to learn that more Sylff fellows are taking advantage of this support program, and we are also grateful to Sylff steering committee members at each Sylff institution for their cooperation in encouraging fellows to apply.
Congratulations to all the awardees! We send them our best wishes and hope their research abroad will be fruitful in further advancing their doctoral research. The 18 awardees are as follows:
