The Asia Pacific Leadership Program is a cohort-based leadership learning and development opportunity for mid-career professionals (5+ years work experience) from United States and the Asia Pacific region. Through place-based, experiential learning, APLP fellows learn and practice leadership strategies to enhance personal, team, and community effectiveness. The APLP is a 9-month program (early-August to early-May) with a minimum 5-month residency requirement. During the first five months all participants are based at the East-West Center in Honolulu and live on campus. All APLP participants are granted an Entry Fellowship by the East-West Center to cover the majority of program fees. The value of these fellowships is approximately US$15,000. The fellowship does not include second semester field study in Asia and the mainland United States.
