The program:
In the Summer of 2009, Fall of 2009 and Spring of 2010, at least 10 graduate
students from the United States will be chosen to study at the Indonesian Consortium for
Religious Studies (ICRS-Yogya) and the Center for Religious and Cross-Cultural
Studies (CRCS) at Gadjah Mada University (UGM) in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The
language of instruction there is English. Students selected will be fully funded for all
expenses. They may choose between:
1. 2 month Summer Session June 1-July 31, 2009 (deadline January 1, 2009)
2. 4 month First Semester, Aug. 24-Dec. 18, 2009 (deadline March 1, 09)
3. 4 month Second Semester Jan. 19-May 14, 2010 (deadline August 1, 09)
ICRS-Yogya is a consortium of UGM, the State Islamic University Sunan
Kalijaga and Duta Wacana Christian University who together offer a Ph.D. in inter-
religious studies. CRCS is a Master’s program in religious studies at UGM. They share
the same space on the beautiful campus of the Graduate School of UGM. ICRS-Yogya
and CRCS enjoy a distinguished, international and inter-religious faculty, and about 70
graduate students who are Muslim, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu.
The place:
Indonesia is the largest Muslim-majority nation in the world and enjoys a history
of tolerance that embraces diversity. Yogyakarta is the educational and cultural “capital”
of the country. Gadjah Mada University with its 56,000 students is the largest and oldest
university in Indonesia and is one of the top universities in Southeast Asia. Students will
be housed on or near campus in a city that is safe and welcoming to its large foreign
student population.
Students will be fully funded for travel, tuition, per diem costs and health
insurance. They will be expected to attend classes and/or pursue research projects
relevant to the resources available at The Consortium. Those resources include: faculty
from a variety of religious traditions and disciplines, an ethnically diverse student body
from all parts of Indonesia as well as other nations, a wide variety of Non-Governmental

Organizations addressing issues of poverty, religious tolerance, gender justice and global
peace. Gadjah Mada University, along with the State Islamic University Sunan Kalijaga
and Duta Wacana Christian University offer excellent library collections and an abundant
array of possible ethnographic projects (either individual or cooperative). For more
