Special Features

Fulbright East Asia Pacific Regional Travel Program

During their grant period, Fulbright Scholars in the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region have the opportunity to apply for funds to support short-term (3-14 days) travel to other countries in the EAP region for activities such as lectures, workshops, graduate or faculty seminars, master classes or recitals, curricular advising or panel presentations. Funding covers transportation only. It is not necessary to suggest regional activities nor identify a host as part of the initial Fulbright application, though scholars may pursue invitations for short-term activities in other EAP countries once notified that they have been selected for a Fulbright grant. Scholars may only apply for Fulbright EAP Regional Travel Program funds when in-country during their Fulbright grant period.
