The 2018 Fulbright USASEAN Visiting Scholars

The 2018 Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholar Initiative is opening its application. Selected U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholars will travel to the United States for three to four months, where they will carry out scholarly and professional research on priority issues to the U.S.-ASEAN relationship and ASEAN.

The objective of the Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholar Initiative is to deepen people-to-people engagement and strengthen our educational ties with the ten member nations of ASEAN, while emphasizing the importance of ASEAN.  To date, 50 scholars from all 10 ASEAN Member States have been awarded scholarships to pursue studies focused on a wide range of subjects including teaching English as a second language, maritime security, health, political security, and wildlife trafficking.

Fulbright U.S-ASEAN Visiting Scholar applicants should be university faculty, foreign ministry and government officials, or professionals in the private sector, think tanks and other NGOs whose work focuses on U.S.–ASEAN issues.  Applicants will be expected to have a significant record of scholarly or professional accomplishment; they must be citizens of one of the ten ASEAN Member States; and they must be proficient in English.  Preference will be given to qualified applicants who have not had recent and substantial experience in the United States.  Applicants must be residing in an ASEAN Member State throughout the nomination and selection process, and they must return to an ASEAN country upon completion of their U.S. stay.
