Background

The EU and ASEAN have a long and successful history of dialogue and cooperation. The partnership between the two major regional integration processes has delivered impressive results in four decades.

For the years 2014-2020, the EU has increased its support for ASEAN regional integration to over EUR 170 million, in addition to more than EUR 2 billion provided to ASEAN Member States at the national level. Through this support, we are working together to reduce the development gap within ASEAN, to make sure that the benefits of globalisation are felt by all. Through the ASEAN-EU Cooperation and Scholarships day, the ASEAN Secretariat will open its doors to the public and provide an opportunity to join a one-day information fair on on-going ASEAN-EU cooperation projects.

The thematic focus of the event would be higher education, because this is both an important topics of EU-ASEAN cooperation, and a way to attract a youthful and student-oriented audience and inform them of overall cooperation priorities between ASEAN and the EU. Southeast Asia is home to some 7,000 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) with around 12 million students. Scholarships intra ASEAN are available among others through various schemes such as ASEAN International Mobility for Students (AIMS), ASEAN University Network (AUN) ASEAN Credit Transfer System (ACTS) and in particular through the EU Support to Higher Education in ASEAN Region (SHARE) programme, which has awarded 500 scholarships to students in ASEAN so far. In addition, the European Union and its Member States provide support for ASEAN students to take advantage of opportunities to study in Europe.

Despite a high number of scholarships by various institutions and Member States of ASEAN and the EU, many ASEAN students are not aware of the scholarships opportunities, their requirements and procedures.  It is therefore helpful to engage also ASEAN and EU Member States in the Cooperation and Scholarships Day.
