Research fellows will receive a stipend whose amount depends on the category of appointment. Their accommodation in Hanoi will be arranged by the Institute. Research fellows are expected to stay at least two months. In case it is needed, research fellows will be granted a travel allowance for one round-trip in economic fare from their home institution.
