With the awareness that interest in researching and writing about pencak silat is still limited, applicants can submit their proposal in Indonesian or English all year round and procedures will be kept to a minimum to encourage participation. Applicants are preferably, but not exclusively, from Indonesia and Southeast Asia, have qualifications and/or knowledge of the proposed subject, and can demonstrate the ability to carry out the project.
When applying, a project note in Indonesian or English is required of no more than three (3) pages providing the basic details of the project, including objectives, methodology, outputs, timeline, and budget. Upon acceptance of the proposal, further discussion with IKA staff may be required to ensure quality and due diligence. Criteria in the assessment of the proposal include:
- The significance and originality of the proposed activity
- Potential for impact in preserving and developing pencak silat
- Feasibility of project within time and work budget
- Capacity of the applicant
- Appropriateness of the budget
