Funded Asia Pacific Leadership Fellowship Program in Hawaii, USA

The Asia Pacific Leadership Fellowship seeks outstanding individuals from all walks of life (government, business, NGOs, health sciences, media, monastic orders, and education) to participate in an innovative leadership development program at the East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawai’i.  The average age of an APLP Fellow is 33, with an average of 5 – 8 years of professional experience prior to entering the program.

All fellows live on the East-West Center’s campus in Honolulu, Hawaii from August through December 2018 for the residential portion of the program.  From January – April 2019, the program is run virtually [online] and fellows have the option to return to their home countries or apply for extended fieldwork in Southeast Asia, internships, self-designed projects and employment experiences.

Scholarship

Upon acceptance, all participants receive a fellowship valued at approximately $13,000 USD to cover a majority of the program costs.  Substantial scholarship funding is available for the remainder of the costs of participation, though timing is critical.  The earlier an application is submitted, the greater the chance that scholarship funds will be available to support participant costs beyond the fellowship provisions.
