EXTENDED DEADLINE: January 31, 2013

Posted on March 06, 2012

The Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF) was established by the U.S. Congress in December 2000 as an independent federal agency. VEF's primary purpose is to promote the bilateral relationship between the United States and Vietnam through educational exchanges, both for Vietnamese nationals to pursue graduate and post-graduate studies in the United States in the sciences (natural, physical, and environmental), engineering, mathematics, medicine (including public health), and technology (including information technology), and for American citizens to teach in the same fields of study in Vietnam. 

The VEF U.S. Faculty Scholar Program addresses the stated goal by having U.S. faculty teach courses in English at Vietnamese universities either on-site in Vietnam or by interactive, real-time videoconferencing from the United States. VEF serves as the organizer and sponsor for this project while the Vietnamese host institutions and the cooperating U.S. institutions serve as co-sponsors through their support. VEF selects prominent U.S. scientists and faculty to evaluate the applications. U.S. Faculty Scholar Program applicants submit a proposal to VEF through an online application available at the VEF website (https://application.vef.gov/usfs/2013). 

Applications will be available ONLY online and ONLY from June 6, 2012 to January 31, 2013.
