The Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF) is pleased to announce the 2010-2011 VEF Visiting Scholar Program (VSP) for Vietnamese nationals, who already hold a doctorate in any of the fields supported by VEF, namely, in the major disciplines of sciences (natural, physical, and environmental), mathematics, medicine (such as, public health), and technology (including information technology). Fields include the basic sciences, such as, biology, chemistry, and physics, as well as agricultural science, computer science, and engineering.
The VSP is intended to support professional development training, which may include studies, research, and/or observational activities, to take place in cooperation with a leading U.S. academic institution. The Visiting Scholar will undertake a program of up to one year in length, which may include formal courses, workshops, seminars, laboratory or field research, or other types of professional development activities.
