2019 Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP)

text size A A A

The East-West Center is pleased to announce that applications are being accepted for the 2019 Asia Pacific Leadership Program Fellowship (APLP). The APLP is a signature program of the East-West Center which brings people together who want to co-create the future as self-reflective, resilient agents. Using experiential, place-based learning with a focus on equity, cohorts of leaders practice leadership strategies in nurturing environments. For nearly 20 years, we have been cultivating leaders who are motivated and capable of creating positive impact in the Asia Pacific region. Incoming fellows join a network of 605 APLP alumni from 45 countries across the globe.

Each year, approximately 25 Fellows are selected to participate in the APLP and join a highly diverse, active community. Basic application requirements are strong English language skills and fellows have at least 5 years of professional work experience and normally 8 to 10. APLP Fellows must have at least a 3 year Bachelor's degree, and 56% of each cohort will also have completed a Master's degree. Cohorts typically have representation from over 18 countries and from every type of academic and professional background (as examples: science, business, development, politics, government, civil society, medicine, religious orders, art, finance, academia or research). The age of participants ranges from mid 20s to mid-40s with an average of 32 years old. There are no citizenship, age or ethnicity restrictions.

Scholarship Opportunities
All APLP Fellowship applications must be completed by March 1, 2019. Substantial scholarship funding is available for candidates with financial need, though timing is critical. The earlier an application is submitted, the greater the chance that scholarship funds will be available to support participant costs beyond the fellowship provisions. Applications submitted by the Early Application Deadline of December 16, 2018 will receive a decision by March 1, 2019.

Online Application
The application for the APLP has been switched to an online system and will no longer require the submission of official degree certificates and transcripts. Applications are now being accepted. Information regarding scholarships, curriculum, field study options and the wider East-West Center community can be found on our website.

Thank you,
The Asia Pacific Leadership Program Team
