The East-West Center is pleased to invite applications for the Asia Pacific Leadership Program Fellowship (APLP) for the 2014 – 2015 year. 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 13th anniversary, the APLP has created a network of 461 dynamic leaders in 53 countries who are helping to build a peaceful, prosperous and just Asia Pacific community. Upon acceptance, all participants receive a fellowship valued at approximately $15,000 USD to cover the majority of the program costs.
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 2014, 35 Fellows from around the globe will join regional specialists and leadership educators in a dynamic learning community. From January – April 2015, Fellows have the option to participate in extended fieldwork in Southeast Asia, internships, self-designed projects and employment experience.
Application and Scholarship Instructions
Substantial scholarship funding is available for candidates with financial need, 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. The APLP Scholarship Selection Committee will meet again on January 31, 2014, so we strongly encourage all candidates to have their applications completed by mid-January. The final deadline for applications is March 1, 2014.
