The U.S. Mission in Vietnam seeks qualified candidates for the 2024 Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN Visiting Scholar Program. The program provides grants to Vietnamese scholars to travel to the United States for three to four months during the first half of 2025, where they will carry out scholarly and professional research on priority issues to the U.S.-ASEAN relationship. Projects should be recommended that are regional in scope and / or 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.

  • Applicants should be university faculty, foreign ministry and government officials or professionals in the private sector, think tanks and other NGO whose work focuses on U.S.-ASEAN issues
  • Applicants will be expected to have a significant record of scholarly or professional accomplishment
  • Must be citizens of one of the 10 ASEAN member states
  • Must be residing in an ASEAN member state throughout the application and selection process, and must return to an ASEAN country upon completion of their U.S. stay

Preference will be given to qualified applicants who have not had recent and substantial experience in the United States.

Applicants are ineligible if they:

  1. Are currently teaching, studying, or conducting research in the United States
  2. Have received a Fulbright grant within the last five years; or
  3. Have been to the United States as a J-1 Exchange Visitor in the category of Professor or Research Scholar within the past two years.

Fields of study could include, but are not limited to:


Financial Market Integration

Food Technology

Information Sciences


Public Administration 

Public / Global Health

Trade and Investment


Proposed 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.
