Luce Scholars Program


The purpose of this program is to increase awareness of Asia among future leaders in American society. The program is unique in that it is intended for young leaders who have no prior experience of Asia. It aims to foster an expanding body of citizens who, without being specialists, are familiar with and responsive to Asian cultures and societies. The Foundation attempts to match the scholar's background, experience, and aspirations with an appropriate internship. Placements will be made in Brunei, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, or Vietnam.


U.S. citizens, not older than age 29, with at least a bachelor's degree.
