Fulbright Scholar Program

Program Summary

The Fulbright Scholar Program plans to send a number of faculty and professionals to Asia in 2002-2003 for lecturing and/or research abroad. A brief outline of these awards is listed below. The Fulbright Scholar Program is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES). The Northeast and Southeast Asia Regional Research Program provides up to three awards for research for scholars or professionals to conduct research in any field in the humanities and social sciences or professional fields such as law, business or journalism in two or more Northeast or Southeast Asian countries. These grants provide support for comparative research in two or three countries in Northeast and Southeast Asia on topics of contemporary interest or historical/cultural significance. Projects for research in a single country are NOT eligible. Applicants requesting a 4 month grant period should not plan to work in more than two countries. Preference will be given to projects that involve collaboration with host country scholars.
