Final Deadline: Not offering 2021 APLP; check back in Fall 2021 for the 2022 APLP

Established by the U.S. Congress in 1960, the East-West Center features a 21-acre residential campus in Honolulu and serves as a resource for information and analysis on critical issues by bringing people together to exchange views, build expertise, and develop policy options. The Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP) is a signature fellowship of the Center. The program links advanced and interdisciplinary analysis of emergent regional issues with experiential leadership learning and consists of 4.5 months of intensive graduate-level study in Honolulu, followed by a highly flexible 4.5 month practicum. Each APLP cohort typically includes 30 fellows that range in age from 25 to 40 years, and represent diverse professional backgrounds and nationalities. APLP alumni come from more than 50 countries.
