Asia Pacific Leadership Program Scholarships

APLP Supplemental Scholarships (subject to annual adjustment)

 

In the past, APLP fellows have been partially or fully funded by employers, government agencies, NGOs, fellowships, scholarships, and other external sources, including sponsors and family support.  In many cases, participants have been self-funded. 

 

In addition to the APLP Entry Fellowship granted to all participants, a sizeable number of East-West Center funding opportunities are available. These supplemental scholarships are competitive and unless stated otherwise, cover costs in the fall semester only. Scholarships take the form of endowed fellowships, annual gifts and occasional awards, and are subject to availability and change. APLP supplemental scholarships derive from a variety of public and private granting agencies, institutions, governments and individuals, including East-West Center alumni. The APLP is extremely grateful for this support.

 

Applicants who complete the Request for Scholarships Beyond the EWC Entrance Fellowship form will be considered for the following supplementary scholarships and fellowships:
