The East-West Center Congressional Staff Program on Asia is a bipartisan educational certificate program, which aims to equip Congressional staffers with greater knowledge of US- Indo-Pacific policy in order to better understand America’s role in and engagement with this dynamic region and the policy implications that will directly engage Congress. It also provides and opportunity for participants to expand their network of congressional colleagues who are involved in similar issues, while engaging leading experts and officials on a range of policy-relevant topics.

This semester-long certificate program consists of a weekly series of eight, one-hour luncheon lectures, held at a Capitol Hill location. Certificates of Completion will be awarded to participants who attend a minimum of six of the eight sessions.

We are accepting applications now through December 31, 2018, for the Winter 2019 class, which will commence soon after the inauguration of the 116th Congress.
