Applications are open for the Asia Foundation Development Fellows Program 2023. Launched in 2014, The Asia Foundation Development Fellows Programme brings together a group of young emerging leaders from across the region who are deeply committed to building an inclusive Asia-Pacific region and securing lasting change on the ground.
This yearlong career advancement programme takes on a multifaceted approach to leadership development which includes two intensive in-person modules, one in Asia-Pacific and a second in the United States, as well as year-round support through mentorship, coaching, and a flexible grant. The in-person coursework explores fellows’ leadership styles, helps fellows effectively articulate their stories, and develops their problem-solving and critical thinking approaches.
The 2023 programme will commence with a two-week Leadership Training Programme and study tour in Laos, where fellows dive into authentic leadership and meet with development practitioners to understand the mechanics of change on the ground. Immediately following the programme in Laos, Fellows will join programme alumni for the second Forum on Leadership for Asia’s Future, a weekend of highly interactive professional exchange and networking. The programme will conclude with visits to San Francisco and Washington, D.C. for a two-week Leadership Dialogue and Exchange programme, visiting innovative organizations while continuing to examine their authentic leadership journey.
