Luce Scholars Program

Through the Luce Scholars Program, eighteen young American college graduates of outstanding promise are sent each year to Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia for professional apprenticeships under the guidance of leading Asians in the interest of improving American understanding of Asia. Students of Asian studies are specifically excluded in favor of those whose professional interests may range from architecture to zoology. Applicants must have spent less than a total of 18 weeks since graduating from high school in the countries where Luce Scholars are placed. Requires university nomination.
