Open to US Citizens & non-US Citizens
In spite of its name, the Luce Scholars Program is experiential rather than academic in nature. At the heart of the enterprise are the internships that are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of his or her specific professional interests, background, qualifications, and experience. Placements can be made in the following countries: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam
Aimed at a very select group of young Americans from a wide range of professional backgrounds, the Luce Scholars Program is unique in placing emphasis on leaders who have had no prior experience in Asian affairs and who might not otherwise have an opportunity during the course of their careers to come to know Asia or their Asian colleagues. A monthly stipend and certain other allowances are provided by the Luce Foundation.
