This program is funded by the Asia Global Institute at the University of Hong Kong and related donors who believe that the future of the world relies on stronger leadership and understanding of mankind’s great challenges.
Fellowships will be awarded to sixteen candidates with outstanding leadership skills and the potential to influence politics, business, policy making, or civil society. These candidates will be mid-career professionals with between eight and twenty-five years of working experience. They must be interested in Asian public policy matters.
These individuals will develop interdisciplinary, intensive leadership development and engage in extensive networking opportunities. Fellowships extend from August 20 to November 16, 2018. This thirteen-week residential program will allow fellows access to all University of Hong Kong educational resources. It features workshops, seminars, and lectures on leadership skills.
Fellows will also embark on several trips to different Asian capitals and manufacturing centers. Several networking opportunities will be provided as fellows engage in policy research and write papers on global affairs topics. Fellows should be mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership experience. They should have a high level of English proficiency.
Fellowships are fully funded, with housing and a monthly supplemental stipend provided. Travel expenses to and from Hong Kong, however, must be paid for by the individual fellows.
