HANOI, January 9, 2024 — Building on the historic upgrade of U.S. – Vietnam relations to Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in September 2023, the U.S. Mission to Vietnam introduces the 2024 Fulbright Specialist Program for STEM Fields.

The 2024 Fulbright Specialist Program for STEM invites Vietnamese institutions to apply for the opportunity to host Fulbright specialists for periods ranging from two to six weeks.  These experts will help institutions prepare curriculum, develop faculty, conduct institutional planning, and train on topics critical to the development of a high-tech workforce to advance our shared interest in Vietnam’s potential as a major player in the semiconductor industry.

The expansion of the Fulbright program affirms U.S. support for development of Vietnam’s semiconductor ecosystem and advances our work together to improve Vietnam’s position in the global semiconductor supply chain as highlighted by the two countries’ two leaders during the announcement of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.

Eligible disciplines for this program include:

– Engineering Education

– Math Education

– Physics Education

– Computer Science and Information Technology

Vietnamese institutions of higher education (colleges, universities, academies), government institutions (ministries or agencies, courts, parliamentary or congressional bodies), and non-governmental organizations and think tanks are encouraged to apply.

Furthermore, the 2024 Fulbright Specialist Program for STEM will foster innovation and educational collaboration, bridging the gap between Vietnamese and American institutions and offering a platform for mutual growth, prosperity and technological advancement.

The application deadline is set for Friday, March 15, 2024.  Interested institutions are urged to apply to be at the forefront of shaping the future of science and technology in Vietnam.
