Are you a post graduate student in marine biology and thinking of conducting your thesis work abroad? We know this can be a daunting task to navigate the ever changing permits and regulations in foreign countries… it can be costly both in time and finances. This is why we have developed Indo Ocean Project’s new yearly Fellowship Grant. Every year we will be awarding 30,000,000 IDR to collaborate in marine research topics in Indonesia.

Indo Ocean Project was founded in 2017 and are currently operating at three locations in Indonesia (Bali, Sulawesi and Raja Ampat). Over the last few years, we have successfully welcomed international students to collaborate and guide them through the process to conduct their field work in remote destinations. We continue to develop our fellowship program to help promote marine research within Indonesia in line with our mission to conserve the marine environment through research, education and sharing of knowledge. 

By conducting your research with Indo Ocean Project, you will gain access to our supportive datasets and our network of local scientists and partners. We will assist in the research permits, translation, logistical organization, and conducting your field work within the scope of our organization’s research goals. We provide an in country scientific mentor and guidance from proposal to publication.

Your topic of study must fit with Indo Ocean Project’s mission and goals with the aim of publication to support local policy enactment and remote research. We can collaborate in the following disciplines:

  • Marine biology
  • Marine molecular biology
  • Marine policy and environmental management
  • Marine conservation biology
  • Statistical analysis
  • Marine social studies (available to Indonesian citizens only)
