Grantees who receive US Scholar teaching awards will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in their area of specialization at Indonesian universities for one academic term (six months). Grantees may expect to teach regular courses, but they may also conduct seminars, workshops, consult on curricular matters, or assist with program and faculty development. The teaching load is estimated to be two graduate or undergraduate courses per semester, with up to eight classroom hours per week, plus possible labs or seminars. Grantees may be asked to give public talks and to engage with the larger academic community beyond their host institution, for which additional funds may be available.
Teaching grants can only begin in the second semester (February) to coincide with the start of the Indonesian spring semester.
Teaching grantees will need a Limited Stay Visa (VITAS) and a work permit from the Ministry of Manpower. AMINEF will provide assistance to obtain such permits. Although the vast majority of applications are approved, AMINEF cannot guarantee Indonesian government agencies’ approval, and in the case of a rejected application, the grantee may not be able to take up the award offer.
How to Apply?
AMINEF does not accept applications for the Fulbright US Scholar Program directly. Applicants must apply online through the website of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars’ (CIES) Fulbright US Scholar Program Catalog.
Questions about application procedure and program deadline should be directed to the CIES Regional Lead, Ms. Sophia Yang, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before deciding to apply for the US Scholar program, applicants are strongly encouraged to check the section entitled Information to consider before accepting a Fulbright Grant to Indonesia.
