The Visiting Scholar Program offers Asian scholars the opportunity to cultivate collaborative research and artistic connections with scholars and artists in the United States. It allows them to enrich their scholarly publications and other contributions through research and artistic practice conducted in the U.S., while also facilitating the establishment of professional contacts in their respective fields and the development of lasting friendships with colleagues in the United States.
