  • Each ASAA Conference hosts special sessions and events for postgraduate students
  • A number of postgraduate members is supported to participate in the ASAA Conference through the Conference Awards
  • Asian Currents always welcomes contributions by Postgraduate students to highlight and publicise their research
  • The ASAA sponsors an Annual Presidents’ Prize and DK Award for the best PhD thesis in Asian Studies
