  • Scholarship Description
  • The Luce Scholars Program is a nationally competitive fellowship program. It was launched by the Henry Luce Foundation in 1974 to enhance the understanding of Asia among potential leaders in American society. The program provides stipends, language training, and individualized professional placement in Asia for 15-18 Luce Scholars each year, and welcomes applications from college seniors, graduate students, and young professionals in a variety of fields who have had limited exposure to Asia.

    The prestigious program is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had limited experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia. Those who already have significant experience in Asia or Asian studies are not eligible for the Luce Scholars Program.

    Eligibility:
    -Must be in physical health that will not restrict them from working in a foreign environment
    -Must have earned at least a bachelor's degree or reasonably expect to receive that degree by July 1st of the year they enter the program
    -Must be U.S. citizens who would not have reached their 30th birthday by July 1st of the year they enter the program
    -Must demonstrate an outstanding capacity for leadership, have a record of high achievement, and have mature and clearly defined career interests with evidence of potential for professional accomplishments. All fields will be considered.
