The SEAS Yale Indonesian Forum (YIF) is an interdisciplinary group that serves members of the Yale community with a common interest in Indonesia and Indonesian affairs, and works with the Council on Southeast Asia Studies to invite guest speakers and artists.
Experiencing Indonesia’s language, culture and history can also be done through various Study Abroad programs sponsored by Yale and other institutions. Students at Yale can apply for summer fellowships from the Council on Southeast Asia Studies and numerous other departments and schools at Yale to support study or research projects in Indonesia.
