1. Program Description:
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 months during the first half of 2024, where they will carry out scholarly and professional research on priority issues to the U.S.-ASEAN relationship and ASEAN. Projects should be recommended that are regional in scope and/pr have clear implications for the entire ASEAN region.
The United States is committed to sustained engagement across Asia as a strategic priority, including working closely with multilateral institutions such as ASEAN. The objective of the Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholar Initiative, which was started in 2012, is to deepen people-to-people engagement and strengthen our ties with the 10 member nations of ASEAN, while specifically emphasizing the importance of ASEAN. This program is complemented by two additional initiatives; the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) and, in the last year, the Billion Futures Initiative. Since the program began in 2012, more than 100 scholars from all 10 ASEAN member states have been awarded scholarships to pursue studies focused on a wide range of subjects including public health/pandemic response, jurisdictional issues in South China Sea, engagement across the Indo-Pacific region, ASEAN economic integration, human trafficking, and food safety. In addition, during the past several years, we have included U.S. Fulbright scholars who are selected for Fulbright awards to travel to two, three or four ASEAN countries for research projects relevant to U.S.-ASEAN priorities.
3. Fields of study:
Fields of study could include, but are not limited to: Education Public Administration Financial Market Integration Public/Global Health Food Technology Trade and Investment Information Sciences Law Journalism These programs and topics should reflect priority areas of the ASEAN Secretariat and the U.S. Mission to ASEAN and may also reflect priorities and relevance to the nominating country. Projects that are regional in scope and/or have clear implications for the entire ASEAN region are to be prioritized.
