The APLP is the center of excellence for leadership education in the Asia Pacific region and a signature program of the East West Center.

Currently celebrating its 14th anniversary, the APLP has created a network of 491 dynamic leaders in 53 countries who are helping to build a peaceful, prosperous and just Asia Pacific community.

Program Description

The APLP 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.

From August – December 2015, 35 Fellows from around the globe will join regional specialists and leadership educators in a dynamic learning community. From January – April 2016, Fellows have the option to participate in extended fieldwork in Southeast Asia, internships, self-designed projects and employment experience.

Application and Scholarship Instructions

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.  Early decision applications are due by December 15, 2014; all other APLP Fellowship applications are due by January 15, 2015.  Late applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until March 1, 2015
