Fulbright Program in Vietnam

03-01-2014

The U.S. Embassy recruits and nominates Vietnamese scholars for placement by the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) as lecturers and researchers in U.S. universities for terms of three to nine months. From seven to ten scholars from Vietnam travel to the United States on an annual basis.

Participants in the Vietnamese Scholar Program are provided with a stipend and living expenses, health and accident insurance for the full term of the grant. Typical grants range from three months to nine months. Participants are also provided with transportation to and from the United States and participants are eligible to apply for further travel grants to cover additional research not covered by the main grant. CIES helps place scholars at appropriate host institutions in the United States.
