I would like to inform you about some exciting opportunities for this year’s Fulbright competition for 2013-2014. Every year, Fulbright scholars from across the United States engage in teaching and research activities that have life-changing potential, from facilitating the prevention of mental health problems among children in Malaysia, to assessing the effect of Filipino emigrants on their families in the Philippines. By defining and participating in projects that delve beneath the surface of topical issues, Fulbright scholars consistently transcend brief cultural encounters by facilitating meaningful exchanges of ideas and fostering mutual understanding, in accordance with the philosophy set forth by Senator Fulbright himself.
Due to your disciplinary expertise and interest in Southeast Asia, I encourage you to consider the award(s) in the following countries:
Cambodia: Award #3083 – teach or teach and conduct research in your area of expertise.
Malaysia: Award #3114 – teach graduate courses, conduct research, or do a combination of both in your area of expertise.
Philippines: Awards #3117 - #3122 – teach, conduct research, or both, depending on the award. While there is an award for all disciplines, there are also awards with various specializations including: agriculture, economics, engineering, business administration and political science, Philippine culture, American culture, and contemporary issues affecting U.S.-Philippine relations – to name a few.
Singapore: Award #3123 – teach undergraduate/graduate courses, conduct research, or do both in your area of expertise.
Vietnam: Awards #3130 and #3131 – teach or teach/research in your area of expertise. There is an award for all disciplines as well as one specifically designed for TEFL teaching, training, and workshops.
Please refer to our Catalog of Awards (http://catalog.cies.org) for more extensive award listings, as well as the US Scholars page of the CIES website for detailed information and guidance on making an application.
Also, on June 12th, I will be conducting a webinar on Southeast Asia. Please register/attend if the awards above interest you – and please bring your questions!
The deadline for the 2013-2014 competition is August 1st, 2012. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and hope to see your application in the next few months!
