Luce Scholars Program – Apply by Sept. 6, 2017

This is a great opportunity for those with little or no prior experience in, or education about, Asian countries to add this valuable perspective to their future career interests! The Luce Scholars Program (http://www.hluce.org/lsprogram.aspx) is open to students and alumni under 30 as of July 1, 2018 in all fields of study (except Asian Studies – sorry!). It is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had limited experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia. The program provides living stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young U.S. citizens each year.
