Graduating seniors, alumni, graduate and professional students at UW are encouraged to apply for the Luce Scholars Program. This is a great opportunity for those with little or no prior experience in, or education about, Asian countries to add this valuable perspective to their future career interests!
The UW is able to nominate 3 students per year to compete nationally for the opportunity to spend 12 months in Asia. The program provides stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young Americans each year.
During the current application cycle for the 2015-16 program, applicants must be American citizens who, by July 1, 2015, will have received at least a bachelor’s degree and will not have reached their 30th birthday. Applicants should have a record of high achievement, outstanding leadership ability, and a clearly defined career interest with evidence of potential for professional accomplishment. Those who already have significant experience in Asia or Asian studies are not eligible for the Luce Scholars Program (Eligibility criteria are set by the Henry Luce Foundation; additional details are provided in the Program Summary below.)
