Calling for paper submissions from young researchers writing on Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas to join the summer school. The one week long summer school will include a seminar/sharing session designed to discuss and present your paper. Financial aids available.
In conjunction with the commencement of Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas Chair, this year (2019) the WISE Summer School will introduce an additional format where we will conduct a short WISE seminar throughout the summer school to engage with young researchers (academics and students alike) to share their research and findings related to the theme and modules in the summer school.
Young intellectuals will participate and interact academically through papers presentations together with feedbacks from the CASIS and WISE academicians. Papers written must be within the theme of "Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas on Islamic Thought and Civilisation" under the categories:
o (1) Religion, Culture and Civilization
o (2) History, Education and Philosophy
o (3) Science, Art and Psychology.
Participants of this type will need to provide:
a) An abstract of not more than 300 words for first stage of application
b) A minimum 10 – 20 pages of written academic paper to qualify for the second stage
c) Prepare a presentation (with or without powerpoint) of the paper
Participants of this type will receive financial aid in a form of fees reduction. We are limiting the participants for this category to 15 participants worldwide. The distribution of scholarship is divided into:
a) 20% reduction from program fees x 3
b) 50% reduction from program fees x 5
c) 80% reduction from program fees x 5
d) 100% reduction from program fees x 2
Factors to be taken into account are one's geographical position, quality of paper, and financial restrictions.
