Luce Scholars: Exposing a Young Generation of Leaders to Asia
The Asia Foundation has managed the Luce Scholars Program in Asia since its inception. This year, as a new class of 18 Luce Scholars embarks on their year-long fellowships, we have renewed our partnership with another four-year commitment.
The heart of a Luce fellowship is the institutional placement arranged for each scholar by The Asia Foundation on the basis of that individual’s career interests and experience. Our long history in Asia has created an extraordinary network of relationships with institutions and organizations. Luce Scholars work and live in Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Since 1974, nearly 600 Luce Scholars have completed their fellowships in Asia, including Paul A. Gigot, editorial-page editor of the Wall Street Journal; Terrence B. Adamson, Executive Vice President of the National Geographic Society; Dr. Diana Farmer, the world’s first female fetal surgeon; and the Honorable David D. Huebner, U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand and the Independent State of Samoa. Many scholars choose to remain in Asia or return there.
The Luce Scholars Program is a living testament to the commitment of the Henry Luce Foundation and The Asia Foundation to building international understanding, and strengthening the relationship between the United States and Asia, one person at a time.
