2019 FULBRIGHT U.S. – ASEAN VISITING SCHOLAR PROGRAM (USAS)
Fulbright Thailand (Thailand‑United States Educational Foundation) is pleased to announce the 2019 Fulbright U.S-ASEAN Visiting Scholars Initiative. The objective of the program is to deepen people-to-people engagement and strengthen U.S. educational ties with the 10 member nations of ASEAN, while emphasizing the importance of ASEAN. This marks the seventh year of the initiative. To date, more than 50 scholars from the 10 ASEAN Member States have been awarded scholarships to pursue studies focused on a wide range of subjects including innovative teaching methods, maritime security, climate change, food safety, political security, and human trafficking.
The program is open to university faculty, foreign ministry or other government officials, and professional staff of the private sector, think tanks, and other NGOs in the ASEAN Member States to travel to the United States for scholarly and professional research for 3-4 months on priority issues to the U.S.-ASEAN relationship and ASEAN. It is anticipated that one qualified applicant from Thailand will be selected by a U.S. – ASEAN selection committee.
The applicants may apply to conduct research in fields that support ASEAN initiatives including supporting regional economic integration, expanding maritime cooperation, promoting opportunities for women, fostering green growth, and addressing transnational challenges (including regional collaboration on issues such as curbing human trafficking, countering violent extremism, preventing wildlife trafficking or promoting sustainable fishing). Fields of study could include, but are not limited to: Education, Environmental Sciences, Financial Market Integration, Food Technology, Information Sciences, Journalism, Law, Political Science, Public Administration, Public/Global Health, Statistics, Trade and Investment, Trade Facilitation, and TEFL & Applied Linguistics. These programs and topics should also be of interest and relevance to Thailand and the ASEAN community. While projects can have specific focus, projects that are regional in scope and/or have clear implications for the entire ASEAN region are preferred.
Please read the announcement and guidelines carefully before completing your online application.
It is solely the applicant's responsibilities to strictly follow the instructions.
