I write to you from the Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) for the ASEAN Region. Born as an initiative of The Nippon Foundation, the IDPP is a network of universities and outreach organizations across ASEAN and the US focused on building a cadre of disability policy leaders in the ASEAN region.
We are delighted to let you know that we recently opened our IDPP Fellowships application to pursue a Master of Public Policy with a focus on disability policy at University of Malaya’s International Institute on Public Policy and Management (INPUMA) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
We expect to offer up to 15 fellowships with preference given to persons from ASEAN who are blind or visually impaired; deaf or hard-of-hearing; and/or mobility impaired. The MPP program is currently residential; accepted IDPP Fellows will live on the University of Malaya campus in Kuala Lumpur for at least 2-3 semesters and take face-to-face classes, which will begin on 1 September 2014.
We hope you and your colleagues may know of someone who may be interested in this fellowship opportunity, or perhaps you may be willing to help us disseminate the information to other disability advocacy and policy networks you may be familiar with. We will continue to accept IDPP Fellowship applications through 20 May 2014.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you very much.
