U.S. Scholar Program

Through a grant from the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs to the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), American academics are recruited and nominated for grants of five to 10 months to participate in the U.S. Scholar Program, directly administered in Vietnam by the U.S. Embassy, which places American lecturers and researchers in universities and colleges, and government ministries throughout Vietnam.
