Asia Leadership Fellow Program 2014 Call for Application

Asia Leadership Fellow Program 2014
Call for Application



The International House of Japan and the Japan Foundation jointly launched the Asia Leadership Fellow Program (ALFP) since 1996. The ALFP seeks to create a close, personal and professional network of public intellectuals in Asia, deeply rooted in and committed to civil society beyond their own cultural, disciplinary and geopolitical backgrounds.


The Fellows from diverse backgrounds take part in such programs as workshops, seminars with resource persons, field trips, a retreat with Japanese and non-Japanese scholars and NGO leaders, and a public symposium.


Since the initiation of the Program, the ALFP has annually invited six to seven Fellows. Over 80 Fellows from 16 Asian countries from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds have participated to date.


The ALFP believes that the Fellows’ critical voices against the status quo and proposals for alternative solutions will lead to developing new norms and value-orientations for the future of the region.


Thus, we welcome your interest in applying for the Asia Leadership Fellow program 2014. Please note that the application deadline is Friday, January 3, 2014.


Before you fill out the application form, please make sure that you read the entire packet and that you meet all the terms of eligibility.
