The SEASREP (Southeast Asian Studies Regional Exchange Program) Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, non-stock corporation created for the purpose of advancing the study of Southeast Asia in the Southeast Asian region through language training, postgraduate study in the humanities and social sciences, training seminars and workshops, collaborative research, publications, participation in international conferences, and linkages with universities and similarly minded organizations.

The SEASREP Foundation has two Secretariats that handle the grants programs. The Manila Secretariat administers the Foundation projects and the language training grant and the Luisa Mallari Fellowship for M.A./Ph.D. Research in Southeast Asian Studies. The Tokyo Joint Secretariat administers the regional collaboration grant.

The MOU Universities are composed of eight universities in the region that signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the SEASREP Foundation to participate in and implement the grants programs. The eight universities are Gadjah Mada University, University of Indonesia, Thammasat University, Chulalongkorn University, University of Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines.

A MOU liaison officer is designated by the MOU member university to receive and process requests of grant recipients (after formal notification to the recipients); disseminate information on the SEASREP programs; monitor the progress of the grantees in their university; and set-up the appropriate internal mechanisms to carry out these functions.

The Regional Journal of Southeast Asian Studies is an online, internationally peer-reviewed, bi-annual journal in English that provides a platform for local scholars based in Southeast Asia to share their research internationally, published by the SEASREP Foundation.
