Luce Scholar Program
October

http://www.hluce.org/home.aspx

Internal Deadline: Oct. 17, 2013
Final Deadline: Nov. 1, 2013

The Luce Scholar Program is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had no prior experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia or their Asian counterparts. The program provides stipends and internships for eighteen young Americans to live and work in Asia each year. Nominees 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 or Asian studies are not eligible for the Luce Scholars Program.

Luce Scholars have backgrounds in virtually any field - other than Asian studies - including medicine, the arts, business, law, science, environmental studies, and journalism. Placements can be made in the following countries in East and Southeast Asia: Brunei, Cambodia, China and Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Internships are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of his or her specific interest, background, qualifications, and experience. These work assignments run for approximately ten months-from September until July of the following year and are intended primarily as learning opportunities for the Scholars.

Princeton in Asia
November

http://piaweb.princeton.edu/

Princeton-in-Asia (PiA) provides transformative, service-oriented experiences for talented graduates and serves the needs of Asia as determined by our Asian partners. Over the last century, the organization has achieved this goal by providing talented young people with various opportunities to live and work in Asia. The first PiA "fellowships" consisted of a handful of Princeton University graduates who went to China in the late 1890s to do relief work and teach English; the program has since expanded considerably in size and scope throughout Asia. In 2007, PiA placed 125 fellows in 17 countries, including Cambodia, China, Timor-Leste, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Laos, Mongolia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Currently the program offers 85 teaching fellowships with 40 additional fellowships in the fields of journalism, international development, and business.

The basic prerequisite for PiA placement is a bachelor's degree. In addition:

  • TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) experience is required prior to leaving for Asia for all English teaching positions. At least 20 hours of TESL preparation either through a short course (such as that offered at Princeton) or through volunteer tutoring will fulfill this requirement. Tutoring can be accomplished at most universities and also through church groups and human service organizations. Check with colleges in your area to see if a TESL course is offered or contact a local Literacy Volunteers program.
  • English teaching positions require native English speaking ability. PiA recognizes that citizens of any country may have native-speaker fluency in English, but we have occasionally had problems convincing Asian institutions of that fact.
  • Asian language ability is NOT a prerequisite for most teaching positions. Non-teaching positions typically require some language skills.
  • All applicants MUST be able to come to Princeton for a personal interview in January, and all applicants receiving placements MUST attend the weekend orientation held in late May on the Princeton University campus.
Robert L. Bartley Fellowship Program
January

http://www.dowjones.com/djcom/careers/bartley-interns.asp

Throughout his 30 years as The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Page Editor, Bob Bartley inspired principled and original thinking that changed and shaped the society in which we all live. He also devoted attention to teaching and motivating talented young people, many of whom have gone on to careers in journalism at the Journal and elsewhere. The Bartley fellowships are consistent with that legacy.

Bob Bartley achieved many honors during his long tenure here including a Pulitzer Prize and, shortly before his death in December 2003, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In awarding that medal, President Bush cited Bob as "one of the most influential journalists in American history." The Robert L. Bartley fellowships will help to perpetuate not just Bob's memory but above all the principles and priorities to which he devoted his distinguished career.


Eligibility and Requirements

The fellowships, consisting of paid internships of one to six months, will be provided to young thinkers and writers whose views are broadly consistent with Bob Bartley's philosophy and who aspire to careers in journalism. Applicants should be beginning journalists, upperclassmen or graduate students with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere. It is essential that they be familiar with, and interested in, the ideas for which the Journal editorial page stands. As many as five fellows will be selected each year through an application process that will be judged by senior members of our editorial board. Fellows will work as writers and editors on the Journal's opinion pages—editorial, op-ed, Leisure & Arts—in the U.S., Europe or Asia.


Responsibilities

Bartley Fellows will assist in researching and writing editorials, editing op-ed articles, editing Leisure & Arts page features, and editing letters to the editor for the Journal and our Web site, OpinionJournal.com.


When does the program start?

Start and finish dates are flexible, though we anticipate that most Fellows will work during the summer months. The fellowship usually begins in June and runs through the end of August, although some run up to six months.

The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program
October

http://www.cdsintl.org/fellowshipsabroad/bosch.php

The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program is a distinguished transatlantic initiative that each year offers twenty accomplished young Americans the opportunity to complete a high-level professional development program in Germany. Over the course of a nine-month program, Bosch Fellows complete two work phases at leading German institutions, both customized to each fellow's professional expertise, and attend three seminars with key decision-makers from the public and private sectors, taking place across Europe. Fellows are recruited from business administration, journalism, law, public policy and closely related fields. No German language skills are required at the time of application.

The program is fully funded by Robert Bosch Stiftung, one of the largest foundations in Germany, with the goal of creating a new generation of American leaders who have firsthand experience in the political, economic and cultural environment of Germany and the E.U.
