Visiting Scholars

USINTEC promotes scholars coming to the USA to engage in scholarship. The traveling faculty member usually obtains funding from scholarships, such as the ‘Scheme for Academic Mobility – SAME’ program in Indonesia, government ministries, a Provincial Government, or other funding source. This funding covers travel and accommodations, and a bench fee to cover the costs of the USA University partner.

At the same time as the faculty member is looking for funding, the faculty member should contact USINTEC so a USA faculty member mentor can be found and paper work can be completed.

Visiting Scholars are usually professors, senior lecturers, or lecturers with a PhD who are developing teaching or learning materials, beginning or finishing a book, developing a research proposal or international paper, planning or conducting joint research with partner university professors, or preparing papers for international presentation or publication.
