Welcome to our research page! We appreciate your interest in conducting research activities related to our history and culture here in the Federated States of Micronesia. We kindly ask you to refer to both our National Research Policy and relevant State Research Policy and apply accordingly.
National Cultural Policy
Please note: FSM National Immigration requires a Bio-data/Resume of the researcher and one (1) letter of recommendation and Research Proposal. Please refer to the Federated States of Micronesia Cultural Research Policy, updated 30 May, 2018 for more information. Please contact our office with required documents to initiate the National research permitting process.
Research Policies by State
All proposal applications should be received by the State HPO officer (not the National HPO), at least 90 days before the proposed research is to begin. Decisions will generally be communicated to applicants within 4 weeks after they are received.
