The Thailand‑United States Educational Foundation (Fulbright Thailand) announces its annual competition for Fulbright awards under the Thai Visiting Scholar Program (TVS) which offers grants to senior Thai scholars to lecture, pursue research or undertake special academic-related projects in the United States.

Thai scholars are invited to submit proposals in various areas of expertise (sciences & technology and social and human sciences) for a grant to conduct research, lecture, or engage in special academic-related projects in the United States. For research projects, preference will be given to topics, which focus upon the Thailand‑U.S. relationship in, for example, political, economic, trade, legal, cultural, or educational affairs. Lecturing projects should deal with topics relating to aspects of Thai society and economics, modern arts, Thai‑U.S. relations, or Thailand’s role in regional affairs.

Selection will be based on professional qualifications of applicants, and on the quality and significance of their project proposals. Applicants are expected to explore in advance the most appropriate location for their research or lecturing projects and should be able to indicate that the proposed host institutions ‑ universities, archives, institutes, etc. – are prepared to receive the scholars. Project proposals will be considered under a condition that the applicant submits an invitation from a U.S. institution along with his/her application.

Up to three (3) awards will be offered during the 2018 academic year for a period of 3‑6 months

Funding for this program is through the Thailand‑United States Educational Foundation under the Fulbright Program; and includes round-trip international travel, monthly stipend, professional allowance, settling-in allowance, health insurance and excess baggage reimbursement. Eligible dependents are spouse and children under 21.
