The Fulbright US–ASEAN Visiting Scholar Initiative provides opportunities for nationals of the ten ASEAN countries (Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) to travel to the United States for scholarly and professional research for three to four months on priority issues to the U.S.-ASEAN relationship and ASEAN. The program is open to application from university faculty, foreign ministry and government officials, and professional staff in the private sector, of think tanks, or of other NGOs in ASEAN member states.
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. This marks the sixth year of the Initiative. 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, climate change, health, political security, and wildlife trafficking.
Applications are accepted from citizens of all ASEAN member states. It is anticipated that 10 qualified applicants will be selected annually, preferably representing all 10 members states.
Applicants from Indonesia should be:
- Indonesian citizen and resident in Indonesia throughout the nomination and selection process
- Willing to return to Indonesia upon completion of their program in the United States
- University lecturers, foreign ministry and government officials, or professionals in think tanks and other NGOs whose work focuses on US–ASEAN issues
- Have a significant record of scholarly or professional accomplishment
- Be proficient in English.
- In good health, to be certified by submission of medical history and pre-departure medical examination
Preference will be given to qualified applicants who have not had recent and substantial experience in the United States.
Applicants are ineligible who:
- Are employees, close family members of an employee, or dependents of an employee of AMINEF, the US Embassy, or the US Department of State
- Are currently teaching, studying, or conducting research in the US or who have received a Fulbright grant within the past five years
- Have received a J-1 visa in the category of Professor/Research Scholar within the past two years
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.
Proposals should be carefully developed projects that will deepen the applicant’s understanding of one or more aspects of the U.S.–ASEAN relationship. While it is expected that the majority of time will be spent in research, grantees are also encouraged to expand and develop their network of professional contacts so that professional relationships established during the grantee’s time in the United States can be sustained after the formal grant period has ended. In addition, grantees will be expected to seek opportunities to provide an ASEAN perspective during their time in the United States through guest lectures, seminars, or participation in academic or professional conferences.
Application for this program will be evaluated by a binational peer review panel in accordance with normal Fulbright standards that are competitive, merit-based, open and transparent. Staff of the US Mission to ASEAN in Jakarta and Indonesian scholars and experts will be involved in interviews of shortlisted candidates. The final selections will be made by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board in Washington.
All applicants are urged to explore possible affiliations with U.S. institutions, including universities, think tanks, and research institutes, in advance of submitting their formal applications. Letters of invitation will enable program organizers to make the most suitable affiliations. All of the selected Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholars will come to the United States during the same timeframe, on the traditional fall semester, starting in September and ending in December.
The minimum period for an award is three months and the maximum period is four months. Your projects should start in September 2018 and end in December 2018.
The grant will provide:
- A monthly stipend for grantees, between US $2,710 and $3,145/month, depending on the U.S. city.
- A direct-flight, round-trip economy-class air ticket.
- A $1,250 Professional and Settling-in allowance.
- Qualifying university lab and research fees up to $3,000, as necessary.
No dependent support will be available.
