The Program is open to university faculty, foreign ministry and government officials, and professional staff of think tanks and other NGOs in ASEAN member nations.

PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES: For 2008-2009, the inaugural year of the program, applications will be invited form interested individuals in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

ELIGIBILITY : University faculty, foreign ministry and government officials, and professionals in think tanks and other NGOs whose work focuses on ASEAN-U.S. issues are eligible to apply.

Applicants will be expected to have a significant record of scholarly or professional accomplishment; they must be citizens of their countries; and they must be proficient in English. Preference will be given to qualified applicants who have not had recent and substantial experience in the United States.

PROJECTS : Proposals should be carefully developed projects that will deepen the applicant's understanding of one or more aspects of the ASEAN-U.S. relationship. While it is expected that the majority of time will be spent in research, grantees are also encouraged to expand and develop their network of professional contacts so that professional relationships established during the grantee's time in the U.S. can be sustained after the formal grant period has ended. In addition, grantees will be encouraged to seek opportunities to voice the Southeast Asian perspective during their time in the U.S. through guest lectures, seminars, or participation in academic or professional conferences. All applicants are urged to explore possible affiliations with U.S. institutions, including universities, think tanks and research institutes, in advance of submitting their formal applications. Letters of invitation will enable program organizers to make the most suitable affiliations.

AWARD TERMS : Grants will provide a monthly stipend for grantees, together with round-trip air travel, and a book and incidental allowance.
