The Thailand-U.S. Educational Foundation (Fulbright Thailand), in cooperation with the Thailand Research Fund (TRF), announces the “Fulbright-Thailand Research Fund Junior Research Scholarship Program,” which is aimed to develop the capabilities of Thai university staff members and interested persons to gain six months of research experience in the United States as part of their doctoral dissertation requirements.

Five (5) grants are available for the 2018 academic year.

Up to two (2) will be awarded under the Fulbright Program and up to three (3) will be under the Fulbright-TRF partnership.

For the grant sponsored by Fulbright Thailand, benefits are intended to cover round-trip international airfare, a monthly stipend for six months, in-transit allowance and health insurance.  For the Fulbright-TRF partnership, funding support will be mainly sponsored by the Thailand Research Fund (TRF) with additional fund from Fulbright Thailand for not exceeding a period of six months.

Fulbright Thailand will assist the grantees in the visa process, coordinate with the host U.S. institutions, and offer non-monetary benefits i.e. orientations, enrichment seminars, international conferences, etc., which will help grantees to get access to their chosen host universities and create quality international networks.
