The Rising Asia Foundation (RAF) is a non-profit professional society of scholars based in Kolkata that conducts charitable educational work. The RAF raises funds from philanthropists, companies, and individual donors for its Rising Asia Fellowships for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students, particularly the needy and promising students. The Fellowships provide financial aid for their university education, and a range of other educational programs.
The donor funds enable the RAF to publish its flagship Rising Asia Journal three times a year. The mission of RAF is to promote excellence in the scholarship, teaching, and presentation of all aspects of Asia—history, economy, arts and culture, literature, diaspora, gender, indigenous studies, diplomacy, peace studies and military affairs. The RAF represents scholars working on India, Southeast Asia, the United States, and East Asia. Our members include college and university professors, senior schoolteachers, students, and scholars employed in government, national and global multilateral organizations and the private sector. The RAF works through our board of Trustees, board of advisors, and editorial board drawn from scholars and businesspersons in India, Singapore, Vietnam, the United States and Canada. The RAF has partnerships with the Royal Academy of Cambodia in Phnom Penh, and the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia in Jakarta.
