Announcing the 2013-2014 US-ASEAN Fulbright Initiative for Scholars and Government Officials

The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and the U.S. Mission to ASEAN invite university faculty, foreign ministry and government officials, and professional staff of think tanks and other NGOs in ASEAN member nations to travel to the U.S. for scholarly and professional research for three to four (3-4) months on issues that are relevant and useful to member nations, and central to the U.S. – ASEAN relationship.  Proposals for the U.S. – ASEAN Fulbright Initiative should be carefully developed projects that will deepen the applicant’s understanding of ASEAN priority topics or of aspects of the U.S. – ASEAN relationship.

AWARD TERMS:  Grants will provide a monthly stipend for grantees, together with round-trip air travel, and a book and incidental allowance.  No dependent support is available.
