ASAIHL Fellowship and Academic Exchange Program





Purpose To enable faculty members to spend time as a visiting lecture at an ASAIHL member institution. 


Prior agreement between the parties concerned should be reached is due partly to the fact that supply has to be matched with demand and partly to the fact that both the sending and receiving universities have certain obligations to fulfill.   Before an application can be sent to ASAHL, agreement should have been reached between the sending institution and the receiving institution (s).   Only one receiving university will apply, provided evidence is submitted to show that an agreement has been reached.


Qualification of Fellows Distinguished scholars who go under this program will not be confined to professors only.

Number of visits must be made to at least one university on each tour.


Period of Stay At each university, there should be a minimum stay of one week and the maximum is six weeks.


Financial Arrangements The Fellow will make the trip as service rendered to his or her university.  He or She will therefore automatically receive his or her regular salary. ASAIHL will pay a supplementary living allowance of US$100 per day, US$500 per week, or US$2,000 per month.  Return air-fare, economy class, will be provided by Air Asia. 


Accommodation and Local Transportation The receiving university will provide suitable accommodation and local transportation or, in lieu thereof, an equivalent allowance as determined by the receiving university.


Medical Care The receiving university will provide a Fellow with medical care during the visit.


Application deadline 1 May 2017
