2019 FULBRIGHT THAI VISITING SCHOLAR PROGRAM (TVS)

GENERAL INFORMATION/PROVISIONS:

The Thailand‑United States Educational Foundation (Fulbright Thailand) announces its annual competition for Fulbright awards under the Thai Visiting Scholar Program (TVS) which offers grants to senior Thai scholars to lecture, pursue research or undertake special academic-related projects in the United States.

Selection will be based on professional qualifications of applicants, and on the quality and significance of their project proposals. Applicants are expected to explore in advance the most appropriate location for their research or lecturing projects and should be able to indicate that the proposed host institutions ‑ universities, archives, institutes, etc. - are prepared to receive the scholars. Project proposals will be considered under a condition that the applicant submits an invitation from a U.S. institution along with his/her application.

Up to three (3) awards will be offered to university faculty lecturers and researchers in a Thai university or research institution during the 2019 academic year for a period of 3‑6 months. Funding for this program is through the Thailand‑United States Educational Foundation under the Fulbright Program, and includes round-trip international travel, monthly stipend, professional allowance, settling-in allowance, health insurance and excess baggage reimbursement. The monthly stipend ranges from US$2,500 to $2,900 based on survey data on the city’s relative cost of living. An additional allowance (approximately US$200-350 per month) is given for qualified dependents who accompany the scholar for at least 80 percent of the grant period. Eligible dependents include the legal spouse and children under 21.

Please read the announcement and guidelines carefully before completing your online application. It is solely the applicant's responsibilities to strictly follow the instructions.

Applicants must submit both online application and a set of hard-copy application by the deadline Friday, November 2, 2018.
