About the Scholarship
The Luce Scholars Program provides fully-paid internships for young Americans to live and work in Asia. Language training is provided, and Luce Scholars convene during the course of the year in a different city in Asia to reflect on their experiences and learn about a different Asian country. The program aims to provide a significant experience in Asia to future American leaders who have not yet had the opportunity to get to know the region in-depth.
Luce Scholars can have backgrounds in virtually any field other than Asian studies, including medicine, the arts, business, law, science, environmental studies, and journalism. No prior language study is required. Placements can be made in the following East and Southeast Asian countries: Cambodia, China and Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
