Rising seniors, alumni, graduate and professional students at UW are encouraged to apply for the Luce Scholars Program ( This is great opportunity for those with little or no prior experience in, or education about, Asian countries to add this valuable perspective to their future career interests!

The UW is able to nominate 3 students per year to compete nationally for the opportunity to spend 12 months in Asia. The program provides stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young Americans each year.

During the current application cycle for the 2015-16 program, applicants must be American citizens who, by July 1, 2015, will have received at least a bachelor’s degree and will not have reached their 30th birthday. Applicants should have a record of high achievement, outstanding leadership ability, and a clearly defined career interest with evidence of potential for professional accomplishment. Those who already have significant experience in Asia or Asian studies are not eligible for the Luce Scholars Program. (Eligibility criteria are set by the Henry Luce Foundation; additional details are provided in the Program Summary below.)

Information sessions covering the program basics, application and nomination process will be held:

 Campus application deadline: Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2014

UW application and information at:

Luce Scholars Program Advisers at UW:

  • For graduate students or alumni – Marilyn Gray,, G-1 Communications
  • For undergraduate students or alumni – Robin Chang,, 171 Mary Gates Hall

 Program Summary:

The Luce Scholars Program represents a major effort by the Henry Luce Foundation to provide an awareness of Asia among potential leaders in American society. Launched in 1974, the Luce Scholars Program is aimed at a group of highly qualified young Americans in a variety of professional fields. It 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.

Luce Scholars have backgrounds in virtually any field other than Asian studies, including but hardly limited to medicine and public health, the arts, law, science, environmental studies, international development, and journalism.

 Placements can be made in the following countries or regions in East and Southeast Asia: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

 In spite of its name, the Luce Scholars Program is experiential rather than academic in nature. Some Scholars have been attached to Asian universities in teaching or research capacities, but none of the participants is formally enrolled as a student in a college or university and no academic credit is extended. Past placements have included an architect’s atelier in Tokyo; a public health program in Banda Aceh; a Gobi regional initiative in Ulaanbaatar; a dance theatre in Kuala Lumpur; an agricultural and environmental center in Hanoi; a human rights commission in Seoul; a pediatric hospital in Bangkok; a TV network in Beijing; a national museum in Siem Reap; an international arbitration centre in Singapore; and English-language newspapers, local governmental agencies and NGOs in diverse fields throughout East and Southeast Asia.

 Professional placements are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of his or her individual interest, background, qualifications, and experience. Each Scholar spends July and August studying the language of the placement country, and the work assignments run for approximately ten months from September until July of the following year. The placements are intended primarily as learning opportunities for the Scholars. Certainly it is hoped that a Scholar will be able to make a professional contribution to the host organization, but equally important is a willingness to learn some of the many things that Asia has to teach.

UW’s recent Luce Scholars:

The Project Assistant will be responsible for providing support to Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI) leadership staff and to Project Coordinators in the development, tracking and implementation of projects.
