University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific (UMAP), founded in 1991, is an  association of government and non-government representatives of the higher education sector in the Asia-Pacific region. The organization is responsible for overseeing  the  UMAP Exchange Program, which involves  the development and implementation of university student and staff exchanges which are consistent with UMAP principles. Through increased mobility of university students and staff, UMAP aims to achieve enhanced international understanding. 

UMAP has  instituted UMAP Research Net  (URN)  to promote  research collaboration and  facilitate cooperation among member institutions, territories,  and  countries.  Cross-border  higher education through the mobility of students, academic staff, programs/institutions, and professionals has grown considerably. Driven by this global trend,  URN further aims  to  promote  academic mobility  and collaboration, and  to promote effective interaction  and exchange  among scholars, researchers, and educators across cultures.  URN applicants may request funding of up to 5,000 USD. For more information or download application form, please visit
