Reflecting an enduring commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, the United States has elevated its engagement across Asia as a strategic priority. A central tenet of that strategy is to work more closely with multilateral institutions such as ASEAN. The objective of the Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholar Program is to deepen people-to-people engagement and strengthen our educational tires with the ten member nations of ASEAN, while emphasizing the importance of ASEAN. 2018 marks the seventh year of the Initiative. To date, 60 scholars from all 10 ASEAN Member States have been awarded scholarships to pursue studies focused on a wide range of subjects.
The Fulbright U.S. – ASEAN Visiting Scholar 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. Selected Fulbright U.S. – ASEAN Visiting Scholars will travel to the United States for three to four (3-4) months, where they will carry out scholarly and professional research on priority issues to the U.S.-ASEAN relationship and ASEAN.
