The Center for Asia Pacific Studies is San Francisco’s gateway to the Asia Pacific region. Since its founding in 1988, the center has bridged the Pacific with programs that spark conversation and promote teaching and research on the peoples and cultures of the Asia Pacific region. Each semester, the center organizes events and facilitates people-to-people exchanges on topics important for our understanding of the Asia Pacific region both historically and today.
Each year, the USF Center for Asia Pacific Studies provides financial support for students in the MA in Asia Pacific Studies (MAPS) to further their studies at USF, via study or internships abroad. Applicants must be incoming 2nd year students in the MA in Asia Pacific Studies program holding a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
