The Luce Scholars Program, a nationally competitive fellowship program, was launched by the Henry Luce Foundation in 1974. It offers a year of immersive living and working experience in Asia designed to introduce this diverse region to talented, public interest-minded young Americans. The program provides stipends, language training, and individualized professional placement in Asia for 15-18 Luce Scholars each year, and welcomes applications from college seniors, graduate students, and young professionals  in a wide range of fields and from a variety of backgrounds who have had limited exposure to Asia.
