Through the United Board Faculty Scholarship Program, promising young faculty from selected United Board network institutions in Asia pursue advanced degree study, taught in English in an Asian country outside their own. Scholarships are designed as opportunities for faculty enrichment for developing colleges and universities in the United Board network in Asia that need to upgrade their teaching faculty, have a plan for faculty development, and are committed to whole person education for their students.
Applicants must currently be employed by a university in the United Board network in Asia, below the age of 40 at the time of application, and committed to return to their home institution after completing their degree program. Preference will be given to candidates with at least 2-3 years of teaching experience and service at their home institutions. Selected candidates may receive scholarship awards of up to US$12,000 per year, for a maximum of four years’ support for doctoral studies and up to two years for master’s programs, pending satisfactory progress.
