Luce Scholars Program

The Luce Scholars Program provides a year’s internship in an Asian country related to the scholar’s interests. The program is designed to provide an extended period of exposure to an Asian country for highly qualified young Americans who lack extensive knowledge of Asian affairs and who would not gain this knowledge through their normal career trajectories. Any professional field will be considered, except Asian Affairs/Asian Studies. Graduating seniors, recent alumni, graduate students, and junior faculty are encouraged to apply.

To be eligible, a nominee must be a U.S. citizen, under age 30 at the beginning the program, and hold at least a B.A. Applicants should have little or no experience in the country of internship. UW–Madison alumni do not have to be on campus to apply, but must apply through the university.

More details on the campus requirements and the application process are available at:

The UW-Madison campus deadline is 4pm on Monday, October 16, 2017.
