More information on the Luce Scholars Program below.
Juniors, seniors, recent alums, graduate and professional students at UW are encouraged to apply for the Luce Scholars Program (http://www.hluce.org/lsprogram.aspx). 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. This is great opportunity for those with little or no prior experience in Asian countries to add this valuable perspective to their future career interests!
During the current application cycle for the 2012-13 program, applicants must be American citizens who, by July 1, 2012, 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.
Placements can be made in the following countries or regions in East and Southeast Asia: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
