United Board Faculty Scholarship Program
2022 – 2023 Application Announcement
The United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia (United Board) is pleased to invite applications for the 2022-2023 United Board Faculty Scholarship Program.
The United Board Faculty Scholarship Program aims at helping colleges and universities in the United Board network by supporting their junior faculty to pursue postgraduate degrees.
The United Board normally provides up to US$12,000 per scholar per year, depending on the overall budget and available cost-sharing. The scholarship is for full-time degree programs, taught in English, within the Asia-Pacific region but located outside of one’s home country. The annual scholarship generally covers tuition, room and board, travel insurance and a modest monthly allowance. The United Board reserves the right to adjust the scholarship amount if the scholar does online studies from his/her home country.
Scholarship applicants may seek admission at institutions within and beyond the United Board network provided they are recognized by their respective governments’ regulating agencies. Scholarship applicants are expected to research thoroughly the host institution’s academic programs to ensure that their chosen fields address their
academic needs and those of their home institutions.
Eligible institutions with a faculty development plan may nominate up to three deserving candidates for the Faculty Scholarship Program. Details on institutional eligibility are in the guidelines.
Applicants must be currently employed as full-time lecturer of the university; have at least 15 years of service before the official retirement; 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. Applicants should be prepared to participate in a Whole Person Education training in the home country or region. Further details are on page 2 of the guidelines.
The application form and guidelines are available in the United Board website at: https://unitedboard.org/programs/faculty-development/faculty-scholarshipprogram/.
Applicants should submit online their completed application form and supporting documents to the United Board before the deadline on October 31, 2021. The online application is at https://unitedboard.smapply.io/prog/faculty_scholarship_program_2022-2023/. The United Board will interview shortlisted applicants from November 2021 to January 2022.
The application results will be announced by late March 2022. Further inquiries can be directed to Ms. Anna Law, Assistant Program Officer, at [email protected].
