The VEF U.S. Faculty Scholar Program addresses the stated goal by enabling U.S. faculty to teach courses in English at Vietnamese universities either on-site in Vietnam or by interactive, real-time videoconferencing from the United States. VEF serves as the organizer and sponsor for this project while the Vietnamese host institutions and the cooperating U.S. institutions serve as co-sponsors through their support. VEF selects prominent U.S. scientists and faculty to evaluate the applications. U.S. Faculty Scholar Program applicants submit a proposal to VEF through an online application available at the VEF website.
