Through solo travel the Fellows will focus on exploration and discovery, learning about the world and themselves in it.

Up to eight graduate and eight undergraduate Bonderman Fellowships will be awarded in spring 2019. Each Fellowship carries a $23,000 award to be used only for extended solo international travel. Fellows may not conduct research, pursue an academic project, or participate in a formal program or organization.

Luce Scholars Program

there is still time to apply for the Luce Scholars Program! UW’s deadline for applications is Sept. 5! The program also just announced some important expansions to their eligibility requirements, hopefully allowing more students to take advantage. In brief, the program is now open to both US citizens and Permanent Residents (formerly US citizens only) with no more than 18 of experience in Asia since high school (formerly 12 weeks anytime).

The Luce Scholars Program is a great opportunity for those with little or no prior experience in, or education about, Asian countries to add this valuable perspective to their future career interests! Please share widely with students in your programs (with the exception of Asian Studies – apologies!). UW is able to nominate 3 students/alumni per year to compete nationally for the opportunity to spend 12 months in Asia. The program provides stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young Americans each year.

During the current application cycle for the 2019-20 program, applicants must be US citizens or Permanent Residents who, by July 1, 2019, will have received at least a bachelor’s degree and will not have reached their 30th birthday. Applicants should have a record of high achievement, outstanding leadership ability, and a clearly defined career interest with evidence of potential for professional accomplishment. Those who already have significant experience in Asia (over 18 weeks since graduating high school) or Asian studies are not eligible for the Luce Scholars Program. (Eligibility criteria are set by the Henry Luce Foundation; additional details are provided in the Program Summary below.) Students are welcome to be in touch with questions!

Campus application deadline: Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018

UW online application form: https://expo.uw.edu/expo/apply/516

UW application and nomination information: http://expd.uw.edu/expo/scholarships/luce

Luce Scholars Program Advisers at UW:

    For graduate students or alumni – Michelle Drapek, mdrapek@uw.edu, G-1 Communications  

    For undergraduate students or alumni – Robin Chang, robinc@uw.edu, 171 Mary Gates Hall

Program Summary:

The Luce Scholars Program represents a major effort by the Henry Luce Foundation to provide an awareness of Asia among potential leaders in American society. Launched in 1974, the Luce Scholars Program is aimed at a group of highly qualified young Americans in a variety of professional fields. It is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had limited experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia.

Luce Scholars have backgrounds in virtually any field other than Asian studies, including but hardly limited to medicine and public health, the arts, law, science, environmental studies, international development, and journalism. Placements can be made in the following countries or regions in East and Southeast Asia: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. 

In spite of its name, the Luce Scholars Program is experiential rather than academic in nature. Some Scholars have been attached to Asian universities in teaching or research capacities, but none of the participants is formally enrolled as a student in a college or university and no academic credit is extended. Past placements have included an architect’s atelier in Tokyo; a public health program in Banda Aceh; a Gobi regional initiative in Ulaanbaatar; a dance theatre in Kuala Lumpur; an agricultural and environmental center in Hanoi; a human rights commission in Seoul; a pediatric hospital in Bangkok; a TV network in Beijing; a national museum in Siem Reap; an international arbitration centre in Singapore; and English-language newspapers, local governmental agencies and NGOs in diverse fields throughout East and Southeast Asia. Professional placements are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of his or her individual interest, background, qualifications, and experience. 

Each Scholar spends July and August studying the language of the placement country, and the work assignments run for approximately ten months from September until July of the following year. The placements are intended primarily as learning opportunities for the Scholars. Certainly it is hoped that a Scholar will be able to make a professional contribution to the host organization, but equally important is a willingness to learn some of the many things that Asia has to teach.

UW’s recent Luce Scholars:

2017 MPA graduate Elena Swartz was selected for the 2017-18 grant and spent last year in Nepal. Elena’s focus in the Evans School was on Humanitarian Aid and Emergency Management. Read more about Elena at http://www.hluce.org/lsbios.aspx#eswartz.

2015 UW graduate Varsha Govindaraju was selected for the 2015-16 grant and spent her Luce year Cambodia.

Foreign Service Officer Fellowships

Undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni who are interested in careers with the US Department of State Foreign Service are encouraged to apply for two different, but similar, fellowships that provide funding for graduate studies leading to a career as a Foreign Service Officer.

The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program Graduate Fellowship and the Thomas R. Pickering Graduate Fellowship programs have both been available for many years, with many UW students and alumni selected as Fellows. Both programs encourage the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. The big news this year is that both programs are now housed at Howard University, though still operating separately and independently of each other; and both programs now have application deadlines in September (rather than January). These changes will hopefully encourage and make it easier for interested students to apply for both!

Please feel welcome to forward these program details to students who may be interested:

Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program Graduate Fellowship:  http://www.rangelprogram.org/ 

Applications due Sept. 17, 2018 (for graduate studies starting fall 2019)

Thomas R. Pickering Graduate Fellowship Program:  https://pickeringfellowship.org/

Applications due Sept. 20, 2018 (for graduate studies starting fall 2019)

Brief descriptions applicable to both:

These fellowship programs seek to attract and prepare outstanding youth people, who represent ethnic, gender, social, and geographic diversity, for careers in the Foreign Service of the US Department of State in which they can help formulate, represent and implement U.S. foreign policy. Both programs select fellows annually in highly competitive nationwide processes and supports them through two years of graduate study, internships, mentoring, and professional development activities. These programs both encourage the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. Fellows who successfully complete either of these programs and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers, in accordance with applicable law and State Department policy.

Although these programs are separate and independent of each other, the basic program structures, benefits, and eligibility are essentially the same. Students can and should apply for both!

Each program plans to award 30 fellowships of up to $37,500 annually for a two-year period for tuition, room, board, books, and mandatory fees for completion of two-year master’s degrees.  This includes up to $21,500 per year for tuition and mandatory fees and an academic year stipend of $16,000.

Eligibility requirements applicable to both:

  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
  • Applicants  must be seeking admission to enter graduate school in the fall of 2019 for a two-year program at a U.S. university in an area of relevance to the Foreign Service. They can be in their senior year of their undergraduate studies, graduating by June 2019, or they can be college graduates.
  • Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher on a 4.0 scale at the time of application.

Jackson Munro Public Service Fellowship

The Jackson Munro Public Service Fellowship encourages a life-long commitment to public service by providing outstanding undergraduates with the opportunity to deepen their commitment to service and leadership in the context of community.

Jackson Munro Public Service Fellows are selected based on the strength of a public service project proposed in collaboration with a public sector (non-profit or governmental) organization.

  • An articulation of how the work of the Fellow will contribute to their development as a public servant and leader

Made possible through the support of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the Fellowship is named for late Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson and S. Sterling Munro, Jr., the former
top aide to Senator Jackson and Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration.
